Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! The start of a new school year is filled with possibilities and promise for your child! There will be new lessons to learn, new challenges to face, and the wonder of seeing your child grow and mature before your very eyes. It is important for you, as parents, to support and nurture this important growth time for your child. Just as an athlete trains and prepares for an important race or a musician practices diligently for an upcoming concert, there are simple routines you can establish in your home to better prepare your child for success in school.
