FROM CABIN FEVER, TO SPRING FEVER…FINISHING STRONG!

Spring Break usually marks the final stretch of the school year and it can be a challenge for kids to stay focused on school with warmer temperatures, spring sports and more daylight to play outside longer. But the remaining month of school is extremely important.  In the next few months our children will be learning important subject content required for successful grade completion and perhaps participating in performances and programs.  In addition, they will be preparing to take state tests that evaluate our schools and standardized tests that assess individual student academic performance which is often used to assist in placement decisions for the next school year, so finishing this school year strong will prepare them for success next year. Parents can make a big difference in helping their children stay motivated, focused and... Continue reading FROM CABIN FEVER, TO SPRING FEVER…FINISHING STRONG!
