For any family that is interested in creating one along with our campus, we have cardboard kids at our campus for you to pick up, or we can send them home.

April is the Month of the Military Child

Throughout the month of April, we will be honoring our Military Children for all of the sacrifices that they make and the challenges that they overcome. Month of the Military Child was first established by Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger. There are currently 1.2 million children of active duty members. Over 2 million military children have experienced a parent's deployment since 9/11.

Please help us honor these students by wearing purple on April 20th. Why purple? Purple highlights all branches of service.

Encouraging Your Kids

Words of encouragement can have a positive effect on kids. When kids are positively reinforced with encouraging words, they become more inclined to repeat the action or behavior. However, not all encouraging words are equal, and give children what they need. Try the 6 following guidelines when praising your child.

1. Praise Sincerely And Honestly

2. Be Specific And Descriptive

3. Praise Their Effort And The Process, Not Ability

4. Avoid Controlling Or Conditional Praise

5. Avoid Comparison Praise
