With the school season on the horizon, we’re gearing up for that first day of classes! There’s just something so special about seeing your friends after a long summer and starting the school year – wouldn’t you agree? We at Lori sure do! Which is why we decided to lend you all a hand by creating a checklist that will help you prep and pack for that first, exciting day. 
Accessorizing is key here at Lori, so we’ve broken down our back-to-school list into 3 must-haves: a cute and kid-friendly backpack that holds it all, a stylish lunchbox for yummy snacks, and a colorful pencil case for the itty-bitty supplies.

  • Loose-leaf and colorful construction paper 
  • Spiral notebooks

Also, here are some extra tips to keep in mind as you prep for back-to-school:

  • Check in with your child’s teacher to see if they have any specific requirements that you haven’t thought of. You never know! 
  • Labelling goes a long way! Knowing what’s yours will lessen mix-ups and trips to the lost-and-found. 
  • Make lunches ahead of time to avoid sprinting here and there in the mornings! 
  • New school? Go for a tour! If possible, reach out to the school’s administration and set up a tour to get familiar with your child’s new surroundings before the first day. 
  • Keep smiling! Starting school or going back is a wonderful milestone for kids and parents alike. 

We at Lori wish you all a great back-to-school season!
