School Rules

Jul 25, 2013 11:30AM ● Published by Lisa Drake

Back In Session

 It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up another sizzling North Texas summer. For some it’s fun to have the kids round a little more. For others maybe it’s a good thing that school is starting back up. Either way, we’ll soon be seeing and feeling a little less of the sun’s rays and heat. But with the changing of the seasons comes a shift in schedules and routines. With fall on the way we’ve dedicated this issue of Mansfield Magazine to the back to school season.

 

As administrators, teachers and students get ready to call school back into session throughout the area, we turned to Mansfield ISD’s district athletic trainer for some insight into the athletic department. Eric White has been in the sports medicine field since the early 1990s when he graduated from Baylor University, and with the Mansfield ISD since 2000. He loves sports and loves to see students excel on and off the field. But the athletes’ safety is his focus.  If you’re unfamiliar with just exactly what athletic trainers do for the district then our Community Profile section is a perfect read for you.

 

Getting into the new school year routine can be stressful for families as it often throws mom, dad and the kids into a disconnected and frenzied pace. So Laurie Fox examines how to keep order around the house and make home a great and comfortable place for all members of the family in this issue’s Homestyle section. It can be done and she makes a great case for just how to do it.

Most school lunches typically involve sandwiches. This issue, Carol Ritchie gives you dozens of ideas that go beyond the stale bologna or ham sandwich. From artisan breads to unique lunchmeat options to a continuum of condiments, you’re sure to find something new to shake up that old sandwich standby.

Our DIY gal, Mary Phillips, shows you how to make a quick back-to-school teacher gift. Your student is sure to be the apple of the teacher's eye with this terra cotta flower pot apple

Confused by all the options for schooling for your children? We asked our friends at GreatSchools.org for tips on what to look for and what to ask when visiting potential schools for your kids.
