12.  Back to School!
We will be taking donations for items to give to our new teachers.  Please watch for upcoming information.

It is time for the kids to start thinking about heading back to school and the parents to help them prepare. 

1. Slow down when you are driving so that you can see the "little people" who forget to look and dart out into traffic. 
2. Remember to send them in tennis shoes on P.E. day so that there are no accidents when running.
3. Set a dedicated place and time for homework that allows them to work uninterrupted and without distractions.
4. Keep open communication with the child's teachers so that you are aware of any issues that may arise to help make changes as soon as possible. 
5. When doing fall sports during the school year, it is important to get plenty of sleep and to eat healthy as well as drink plenty of water. 
6. Remember to limit time on the computer and electronics so that their brains and eyes have a chance to rest.
7. Have fun! Volunteer to read, go on a field trip, or have your child read aloud to you when doing their reading homework. 

Have a safe and successful school year!
