🏫 The EVERYTHING School Guide!

Your Handbook to Surviving the School Year

By Christen Reiner, Macaroni Kid Lakewood-Littleton Editor and Publisher October 12, 2017


A Note from Your Publisher ~ I had SO MUCH FUN gathering info for our Back to School Guide, that I decided to create an EVERYTHING School Guide that's accessible all year long!! It will include all of the Back to School info, along with stuff you can use all year long. Be sure to check back often, as I will continue to add new information --- I think you'll find yourself coming back for more throughout the school year!!         ~ Christen


The school year can be overwhelming...for both the kiddos AND mom and dad! We've gathered all of the best helpful hints, after school classes & lessons, school info, snack suggestions...and much, much more to help you make it through the school year successfully!
