7 Tips to Spring Clean Your School Routine


Spring is here! It’s the season of renewal, which makes it the perfect time to get organized! After a long winter it is great to open the windows and let a fresh breeze in!

Spring is the season for cleaning the house, decluttering, and feeling refreshed. Why not take the same approach with school?

Spring Cleaning = Success!

Spring is also the season when school motivation can start to drift. Students want to spend more time outside and it’s easy to let the focus on schoolwork slide. Spring cleaning can also help keep students feeling focused on school!

Start with getting organized! Strong organizational skills have a long-lasting impact on a child’s ability to succeed throughout their academic career. By spending some time completing the items on our School Spring Cleaning Checklist, students get back on track and aren’t letting all the hard work and effort from the year go to waste. 

This checklist is the perfect resource to end the current year strong—especially important for teens heading off to college!

Spring Cleaning Checklist for School

  1. Audit your daily routine. Is there something in your daily routine that makes more sense in the winter than in the spring? Remove all unnecessary or invalid time constraints and replace them with activities better suited to the season. Routines are essential for consistency and success, so ensure you’re making the most of them!
  2. Give backpacks and lunch bags a thorough cleaning. Children’s school bags are notorious for bringing home forgotten items and unidentifiable messes. Refresh and keep them in good condition with regular cleanings to be used for years to come.
  3. Organize study and homework spaces. Having less clutter in your surroundings helps remove clutter from your mind! Tidy up workspaces to give the mind a reset. Plus, it’s a great way to see if any supplies need replenishing before the end of the year.
  4. Incorporate springtime learning activities. Use the nicer weather to turn learning into a fun, hands-on activity for boosted engagement. It also moves the body—an active body equals an active mind!
  5. Check-in on mental health. Mental Health plays a vital role in learning, affecting students’ ability to be present and learn. Staying resilient will ensure adaptability as end-of-the-year responsibilities get added to their plates.
  6. Map out remaining assignments and due dates. Reduce end-of-year school stress such as achieving academic goals and earning good final grades.
  7. Sign up for Summer Learning. Keep the spring momentum going strong right through the summer with a summer learning program. Catch up for next year, review key subjects and start next year ahead with a summer learning program.
