Make the Most of this Time of Year
Summer is a great time to enrich and enhance student learning in a fun way. Parents can plan small, inexpensive or free outings in and around Rock Creek that will allow students to expand their knowledge and pique curiosity. Parks and nature preserves serve as excellent outdoor classrooms where children can learn and explore. Children need to read daily, so picking out books at the library is a fun way to read for pleasure and keep up on reading skills.
As parents look toward getting back to school, it is helpful to get students back on a “school” schedule prior to the night before school starts. If bedtime has become lax, try moving it up 15 minutes each week until the ideal bedtime is achieved. By implementing earlier bedtimes a couple of weeks before the start of school, students will be ready for their return to a new school year.
