HOW TO TRANSITION SUCCESSFULLY FROM ELEMENTARY TO MIDDLE SCHOOL
When your child is about to graduate from fifth grade to middle school, you may wonder, where did the time go? Wasn’t it yesterday when my little one went off to preschool? Now it’s time for middle school, how did that happen? We invite you to read Executive Director Shosh Byron's latest blog, "How to Transition Successfully from Elementary to Middle School."
INVOLVED PARENTS BUILD SUCCESSFUL CHILDREN
Some of the best advice I received from a friend, when my daughter was starting kindergarten, was to get involved with her school. Studies show that when families are involved with their child’s education it has a positive impact on their development. Being an active parent in your child’s school life will encourage them to succeed, regardless of a family’s financial status or academic achievements. We invite you to read Executive Director Shosh Byron's latest blog, "Involved Parents Build Successful Children."
ALL ABOUT SCIENCE
Children are naturally curious, they always have an abundance of questions for both parents and teachers; "Why does the sun shine?" "What makes cars move?" "Who made the ocean?" "Where do birds sleep?" Questions such as these are opportunities to teach science to your child. Children who are exposed to science at a young age will be more inclined to be interested in science as teens and young adults. We invite you to read Executive Director Shosh Byron's latest blog, "All About Science."
