Letters cut out of magazines spelling Spring Break tacked onto grid paper with tumbtacksSpring Break will soon be here and whether you decide to go out of town or stay close to home, here are some kid-friendly ideas to help make some lifelong memories.  In our area, there is a range of activities, from the libraries to the museums or the movies.  There are also parks for nature walks and to go camping.  Use this time to connect with your children and remember not to lose sight of academics, encourage your child to read and explore their online resources to exercise their brain as well.  There are several fun-filled educational sites on the left-hand side of our website in Student Resources.
