Shopping Dates

Carve out some special time for each of your children and mark the calendar. The kids will have something to look forward to and you’ll have the opportunity to connect individually as you shop for supplies and a first day outfit, and enjoy a meal together.

First Day Photo Shoot

A few ideas to consider: best friends, their favourite backpack, a new uniform, getting on the bus, walking down the street and waving goodbye at the door. Or your child holding up their fingers, trendy chalkboard or piece of paper with their new grade.
