How to Write a Letter to Your Future Adult Child

Kids grow up fast and parents often get too caught up in daily activities to think about their child’s future. Writing down all your experiences, hopes, and lessons for your future adult child will help give them a better understanding of how you were at that age and what they should expect in the coming years. Your child is young now, but what do you want to tell them when they become an adult?

Early Release on December 22

Friday, December 22, is the last day of the semester. Students will be released at 11:30 a.m. with no lunch and no after-school care. Parents should make other arrangements on that day.

Fitness for Kids

Exercise keeps kids physically and mentally healthy. Children need at least one hour of physical activity a day to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Getting active improves the immune system, makes bones stronger, and decreases risks of diseases later in life. Starting exercise at a young age can prevent certain types of cancers and will help blood pressure and bone density in the future. From rollerblading to joining a sports team, there are many options to get kids out and about.
