It's hard to believe that it's already August, and the summer is flying by! For many families, summer vacation is coming to an end and parents are counting down the days till school is back in session. Whether you are moving to a new district or just preparing for the next grade level, choosing a school that is the best fit for your child can be challenging. Our website has some great tools for comparing schools and communities that may help make the process easier for you. It's not too late to find a home within the boundaries of your top school choices. Let's get together to discuss your options!

August also recognizes National Safe at Home Week to raise awareness for the dangers hiding in your home. Did you know that more serious injuries occur at home than at work? Home-related injuries adversely affect family and personal quality of life. Take some time to walk through your home to check for potential hazards. Make home safety a year-round project for your family, the end result will be worth the effort.
