We all know how stressful the first week of school can be. There are unplanned interruptions, baseline assessments that have to be done one by one, school supplies that have to be sorted, and so on. . . And while I always genuinely loved going back to school, these interruptions drove me crazy. So I finally got proactive and created this one-stop, ultimate back to school packet. It was a lifesaver!
