5 Things You Need For Your First Day of School

It's hard to believe that the first day of school is already upon us! Osage Beach and Camdenton both start school on August 18th. With less than two weeks to go, we want to help you get prepared and start the school season on the right foot! Here are a few things that will help you prepare for school and start the 2015/2016 school year off with a bang!

1. School Supplies

Between pencils, notebooks, folders and textbooks, your child will be toting around a lot! Be sure to get a good backpack that will carry around the necessities. Most schools have a list of the things you will need to have for each grade. Contact your school if you have any questions about the specifics.

2. Uniforms or Seasonal Clothing

Depending on the school your child attends you may have uniforms or dress codes. There are places at the mall where you can get uniforms that match the school guidelines. Also be sure to verify the school dress code before purchasing new school clothes. You may also want to keep an eye open for some seasonal clothes such as jackets and warm shirts. It may still feel like summer outside, but before you know it the weather will be changing!

3. Schedules

You can help eliminate the first day of school stress by printing out a copy of each child's schedule. You can highlight specific times and rooms to help them stay organized, and put the schedule in a page protector to keep it safe throughout the day.

4. Healthy Snacks and Lunches

Whether you your child will be getting lunch from the cafeteria or packing a lunch, you'll want to have some healthy things in stock to help prepare them to operate at their best! Healthy brain snacks include: Blueberries, avocado, whole grains, broccoli and dark chocolate. These snacks can be combined with others to make trail mixes, a great snack to stash in their backpacks!

5. Have Fun

Every new school season is a great accomplishment, and a time to prepare for all that the new season will bring! Make a few memories before sending your child off for their next big adventure! Go grab some delicious Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks, and connect with your kids! Sometimes they may be scared or nervous, and you can reassure them about how much fun they are going to have.

The Best Restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks

The beginning of the school year can seem hectic and crazy, especially since it seems like it just comes faster and faster every year! While you're out shopping for all of your school supplies and clothes, remember to make Li'l Rizzos a part of your day! We have the best Italian at the Lake of the Ozarks and we are a great place to sit down and relax from all of the busyness and preparation for school. We have a delicious lunch and dinner menu, and we're conveniently located at the Premium Outlet Mall, so you can do some shopping and swing on over! We also have a great carry out menu as well. Imagine a busy day full of shopping and preparation, and instead of having to make dinner you can stop by Li'l Rizzos for the best take out at the Lake of the Ozarks. We wish you all a wonderful school season!
