Back to School Season – Getting the Kids Ready

Back to school season is a special time of year and now is the time to get ready. The weather may still be warm and sunny, but pretty soon the days will start to get shorter and the nights will start to get colder. If you want your child (and yourself) to be ready for the first day of school, you need to start getting ready early. Here are some tips to get you started.

Back to School Shopping

Back to school shopping can be tough, both from a practical and a financial standpoint. Start by asking your kids to make a list of the things they need, from pens and pencils to calculators and protractors. Put the list together, look for sales and try to get everything in a single trip.

Be sure to include your kids in back to school shopping, especially for clothes. Look for clothing items that can be combined in a variety of ways or mixed and matched in a creative fashion. This will help keep costs down while still allowing your son or daughter to look fashionable.

Ease Those Fears

Whether your child is heading out for their first day of kindergarten or the first day of high school, it is only natural to be nervous. Reassure your child by reminding them that the other students are probably feeling the same fear and anxiety as they are.

Talk about the good things about the school year to come, from the great new things they will learn to the lifelong friends they will make. Stress the positive aspects of school and remind your child how much fun they had in the previous year.

Give Your Scholar Some Brain Food

Your child cannot learn without fuel to their brain, so think about the lunches you will pack or the nutritional advice you will offer. Check with the school to see if home-packed lunches are allowed. If they are, pack a first day of school lunch filled with your child’s favorite things to eat. The first day of school should be a treat, and finding their favorites in the lunch box is sure to boost their mood.

If packing lunch is not an option, make sure your child understands how the meal cards work and when they need to be refilled. You might need to talk to the staff at your child’s school or log on to the school website to get the information you need, but it is important that your young student be prepared.

Get Educated Yourself

With the first day of school just around the corner, now is the time to get educated and learn as much as you can about the school year to come. Reach out to teachers, administrators and others at your child’s school, get copies of class schedules, menu plans, reading lists and the like.

The more you know about the curriculum for the coming year the easier it will be to help your child with homework and the preparation of required assignments. It might be your child heading off to school, but you need to be educated as well.

The first day of school is always a special time of year, but it can be a frightening time for some kids. Preparing your kids for the first day of school now will make the transition from summer vacation to effective learning a lot smoother and more productive.

What Does Toyota Smart Stop Technology Do?

There was a time when the very concept of a car that drove itself or made its own independent decisions would have generated laughter. It was not that long ago that self-driving cars were the stuff of science fiction and few in the automotive industry thought that this technology would ever become a reality. That time is long past and these days autonomous driving technology is very much a reality. With full self-driving prototypes already on the road and more to come, drivers are getting more and more comfortable with the reality of cars that drive themselves.
 
What many people still fail to realize is that autonomous vehicle technology has been available in production vehicles for some time now. Toyota Smart Stop technology is at the heart of the company’s efforts to make driving safer and protect drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. Compared to some other driver assist technologies, like lane departure warnings and blind spot monitoring, the Toyota Smart Stop technology is relatively subtle. You might not even know it’s there until you need it.
 
Toyota Smart Stop is an innovative feature and an integral part of the Toyota Star Safety System. The feature was originally designed to help with braking when the driver accelerates unintentionally. Toyota Smart Stop will kick in if a driver inadvertently presses down on the accelerator and the brake pedal at the same time. This is surprisingly easy to do, especially in an emergency or high-stress situation, but Toyota Smart Stop can prevent this simple mistake from becoming a tragedy.
 
Toyota Smart Stop uses throttle by wire technology, which replaces the traditional connections in the engine to make driving safer. This innovative feature uses a wire that carries an electrical signal to the engine. The engine is able to reduce power when both pedals are depressed, which allows the vehicle to come to a stop safely. Toyota Smart Stop is also able to recognize when only the brake pedal is depressed, so it will not interfere with normal braking. If the brake pedal is pressed down first, the system will not initiate.
 
Toyota has always been a leader in automotive safety and its commitment to safety continues with Smart Stop technology. If you would like to experience this feature for yourself, head down to Royal Palm Toyota today.

Born in the USA: Toyota Camry Earns ‘Most American Car’ Honor

Many people do not think of the Toyota Camry as an American car. After all, the Toyota Corporation is headquartered in Japan and the iconic carmaker is most closely associated with the Asian continent. What many buyers may not realize is that Toyota has made a strong commitment to North America, the United States in particular, so much so that the 2016 Toyota Camry topped the list of most American cars in the latest survey by Cars.com, a recognized leader in the world of automotive journalism.
 
It may seem surprising that a vehicle so closely associated with Japan would earn the designation of “Most American Car”, but when you look under the surface it is easy to see why the 2016 Toyota Camry was able to achieve such an accolade. The sheer amount of American-made parts comprising the Camry make it quickly becomes apparent that the 2016 Toyota Camry is truly “Born in the USA.” If you are looking for an American car, the 2016 Toyota Camry is the perfect choice.
 
The iconic Toyota Camry has been the recipient of countless awards, but the title of “Most American Car” may be the best one yet.  The staff at Cars.com take great care when examining and discussing cars and they know that the 2016 Toyota Camry is more American than ever before.
 
In awarding the 2016 Toyota Camry the “Most American Car” designation, the editors at Cars.com noted that the vehicle sports a domestic content rating of 75 percent, far higher than many models from carmakers based in North America.
 
The domestic content rating was one of the deciding factors that Cars.com used in awarding the 2016 Toyota Camry the “Most American Car” award, but it was not the only one. The people on the award committee also looked at factors such as overall vehicle sales and the final assembly point. The 2016 Toyota Camry bested the competition to be named the most American car on the market.
 
In winning this prestigious award, the 2016 Toyota Camry surpassed a number of worthy competitors, containing a higher domestic content percentage than the likes of the Buick Enclave, the GMC Acadia, and the Chevrolet Traverse.
 
If you have always envied the reliability, strong resale value, and beauty of the Toyota namesake but wanted to buy American, fear not. The 2016 Toyota Camry is the most American car out there and there has never been a better time to get behind the wheel. Head down to Royal Palm Toyota today to experience this all-American vehicle for yourself.

Dealership Voted 100 Best Dealerships to Work For

When it comes to the automotive industry, employee satisfaction is no mere afterthought. Maintaining a happy, healthy workforce is an essential part of running a great dealership, and that is why we were so thrilled to be voted one of the 100 best dealerships to work for.
 
We have always worked hard to maintain a positive and customer-oriented workplace, one where employees feel empowered to make suggestions and everyone enjoys their time on the lot. It was exciting to see our hard work validated with our inclusion on the recently published list of top 100 dealerships to work for.
 
The award was all the more thrilling given the difficult criteria used to make the final decision. The 100 best dealership award is actually the culmination of a two-step process, and only a small percentage of dealers make the cut.
 
The first step of the selection process requires each employer to complete a detailed questionnaire that provides extensive information about their business and their workers. This questionnaire is important, but it is only the beginning of the selection process.
 
The second part of the selection process for the 100 best dealership award is even more critical, since it centers around the opinions of the employees themselves. Worker satisfaction is a key part of the selection process, and without happy workers no dealership can make the cut.
 
The second and final part of the 100 best dealership selection process asks the employees of the company to complete a special survey. This survey is designed to provide information about employee satisfaction, workplace morale and a host of other important factors.
 
Once all the information has been compiled, the data from the two separate elements of the selection process are combined. That combined data is poured over by experts and analysts to determine the individual strengths of each dealership vying for the prize. This analytical data is then used to rank each dealership, eventually arriving at the coveted list of top 100 dealerships.
 
We have always known that running a successful dealership without dedicated and happy employees is simply not possible. The employees of any dealership are the backbone of the operation and their morale will shine through in everything they do. From the way they greet new customers to the way they handle their back-office activities, employees who are happy are simply more productive. We have always known that and we have always worked hard to create a healthy and positive workplace for our employees.
 
It is wonderful to know that our employees feel the same way about us and our dealership as we feel about them and their contributions. We know that it is our hardworking employees who have made us a success, and we never take that success for granted. Instead, we work hard every day to make our dealership, and our workplace, better than ever before. We are thrilled to have been awarded the top 100 dealership award and we look forward to a repeat performance in the coming years.
