Gadgets for Christmas

With Christmas here, some children may ask you to get them new computers, better internet at home, maybe e-readers or other electronic gadgets. If your family budget  can accommodate them, these can be a huge help for your child in school, keeping students excited about learning outside the classroom, or motivating them to hit a specific goal such as perfect attendance or a B in math.

Giving thanks for what we have

Our schools and our families are preparing for the Thanksgiving. Holiday food and toy drives are popping up everywhere to help prepare baskets for needy families over the winter.

Harvest Fest makes the most of autumn

We have been presenting Harvest Fest in our schools for a few years now, and every year it is more fun. The littlest children in their costumes – princesses, superheroes, all kinds of animals – are so adorable.

Feeding families, feeding communities

September is National Hunger Month, as well as National Childhood Obesity Month. The non-profit group Feeding America has released numbers for child hunger and food insecurity in each of the 50 states.

Back to school, back to sports

Besides back to school, fall also means sports. (Ask any football fan!)  Depending on the school size, some of our campuses have tackle football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, cheer, flag football and even a chess team – mental athletics count, too!
