Do you hear that? It’s the collective groan of thousands of kids watching their summer come to quick close. So, with school just around the corner, this is the perfect time to put some good habits into place for the new school year.

Where to begin? You can get your crew started off on the right foot by getting them organized. Purge their bedroom closets to make room for new clothes, clear out old papers and books and pack away the gaming consoles.

Next, stock up on supplies like lined paper, sticky notes and highlighter pens for school and for your home.

In fact, many educational experts agree – a dedicated study space set aside just for learning in the home is vital for kids to become productive students.

An office nook provides the perfect quiet zone to help busy kids stay focused and on task.

TRI Pointe Homes’ spacious bedrooms, office spaces and work stations that sit close to the kitchen make it possible for students of all ages to settle in and get focused on their tasks. Even our large kitchen islands are a great place for the kids to spread out their textbooks and get to work.

Wherever your student studies, keep the area tidy, free of distractions and supplied with a computer and an online dictionary, thesaurus and a handy grammar checklist for easy reference. Then watch those all those good grades come rolling in.
