Week of September 14, 2015

A new season is approaching and with that you are going to start to see some slow changes. Making changes from your summer routine to your school routine may be a little difficult. You have to be flexible, patient, understanding, and maybe a little excited. Hopefully, things are starting to come a little easier now. But, if you still have questions or feeling frustrated, because change can do that, please let us know. We are learning something new every day and want to be able to help answers your questions. Take a deep breath and you will see that sometimes change is for the best.
