As back-to-school supply lists continue to be filled, many parents are asking, what are the best products for my children? What features should they include? In addition to the items on the supply lists, what else should my kids have for this school year?
Who better to answer those questions than a teacher! In the following video from New Day NW in Seattle, one teacher shares his Top 5 supplies that every student should have, no matter the grade or level of schooling.
For more on school supplies for your kids, visit the AT-A-GLANCE website. And for tips on planning, organizing and productivity for you and your student, check out our Success Center.
Here’s to a GREAT 2013-14 school year!
Everyone takes pictures of their kids on the first day of school, right? Maybe those pictures can make you a winner!
Submit a photo of your child(ren) taken on their first day of school this year and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your first name, your child’s first name, the grade they are entering and a subject line with “Photo Contest” included. We will be posting each one to our Facebook page so friends and family can see the photo—be sure to show off your new school supplies!
We will draw two winners at random to receive some Five Star back-to-school goodies. This contest ends Friday, Aug. 23 at 12 Noon EDT. Good luck!

I’ve talked about WallMates dry-erase surfaces in the past and provided detailed information on why they are the best wall organizing solution for most homes and offices. But why take my word for it?
The professional organizers at Matt Baier Organizing recently reviewed WallMates, providing an informative and positive report. As stated in their review, “The WallMate is the difference between ‘We should hang a whiteboard’ and ‘We HAVE a whiteboard.’ I recommend it.” Read the complete review on the Matt Baier Organizing Blog.
There are so many options available when using a WallMates dry-erase surface. For example, being in the midst of back-to-school season, we’ve seen them in student lockers and as the “central schedule” in many households.
How would you use WallMates? Give us your unique and innovative ideas and you could win a back-to-school prize pack featuring your very own WallMates.
Deadline for entries is Friday, Aug. 16 at 12 Noon EDT. Don’t wait any longer—get “stuck” on WallMates today. Good luck!
