It's Backpack Cleanup Time

It isn’t hard for your child’s backpack to get bogged down with old papers, used permission slips, and non-essential clutter. Get a handle on the mess with a weekly cleanup routine. Lay out everything on a clean surface. If papers are no longer needed, ask kids to toss them in your recycle bin and organize materials that might be needed again in a separate file.
