We will be hosting 2 Parent Workshops per month. Monthly parent workshops can be found on our Upcoming Events page and related links as well as useful tips are listed bel Managing School Holidays and Vacations
Few parents have as much vacation time available as do their children, so arrangements have to be made for child care and supervision within the frame work of the demands of the parents' jobs. If your spouse has some flexibility in his or her work schedule, divide the home responsibilities so one of you takes time off during different parts of the children's vacation. Some couples are able to work out a plan where Mom is home in the morning, and Dad replaces her in the afternoon; perhaps one or both can work flexible schedules (6 A.M. to 2 P.M.; 2:30 P.M. to 10:30 P.M.) So that at least one parent is home at all times.

No one can make a bigger difference in your kids’ lives than you! By encouraging their natural curiosity, you can keep your children’s skills sharp and have fun as a family at the same time. We asked top teachers—many of whom are parents themselves—for their ideas, suggestions, and advice on how parents can make at-home learning a part of daily life.

But before you know it, the holidays will be over and it will be back to the bus stop. To prepare for a smooth re-entry and a successful second semester, don't let school skills like reading, writing, and math slide completely during winter vacation.
