One of the most exciting and nerve-wracking days of the year is the first day of school. On the one hand, kids are excited to meet their new teachers and make new friends. They might look forward to a new schedule, getting a locker, starting new sports, and returning to their favorite extracurricular activities. On the other hand, they might be nervous about studying new subjects, fitting in, and other challenges. 

The nerves associated with the first day of school may be heightened by starting at a completely new school and phase of education. Starting sixth grade is a big deal. It’s the beginning of middle school. 

When considering a school, we know that parents want the best for their children. Each child is different, and each age group has different necessities. 

As children develop, they go through different stages where different things become more important to them than other things. They’re changing and growing, and that means their needs are changing and growing as well.

If you are debating between public or private school for your elementary or middle school-aged child, we have seen firsthand the benefits that our students have had here at a Christian private school.

Is Private School Right for My Kids?

The world has changed so much over the years, but the one thing that has never changed is the desire for, and concern over, children’s education. Whether it’s in the private, public, or homeschool, every parent has made a decision, and every parent is trying to do the best they can for their children.

Maybe circumstances or concerns have heightened for you in your child’s academic journey recently, and you’re starting to ask yourself if something else would be better for them. Maybe you feel stuck between fighting the morals being taught at your school, the lack of education, or lack of opportunity, or maybe all of that is fine, but you just want something MORE.

Should I Start a Garden with My Kids?

In this day and age, it can be hard to get kids away from screens. Whether it’s television, the iPad, or video games, the screen has become a large part of children’s lives. 

To be honest, it can be hard at times to really think about activities to have your child engage in besides screen time. It can also just be easy to let them do their own thing and, as parents, do your own thing; screens being the simple solution to that.

If you’re looking for new activities that get your child out and about, one fun way to spend time during the spring and summer with your children is gardening together. It’s time that gets both child and parent away from screens, and it is time together instead of apart.
