School is out for summer! It’s time to pack your bags and hit the road for your summer vacation. If you’re like many families, you’ve got plans for a road trip to visit a new part of the country and share all the sights and sounds with your children. While you’re gone you’ll inevitably fill your days with fun kid-friendly activities, but have you ever thought about making education a more central part of your summer vacation?
As you work through the decision to send your children to either private school or one of the alternatives, you’re probably getting a lot of information and opinions about which option is best. However, what you probably haven’t heard enough of is, why other parents love private school. Choosing the right school is a big investment for your children's future, for your finances, and for the well-being of your family.
Any person who decides on a career in teaching is in it for more than fame and glory. Teaching - shaping the minds and hearts of young people - is a calling, and you have to be all in to take on that job. At St. Barnabas School we are proud to have a team of incredible, dedicated teachers who add not only to the lives of our students but to the vibrancy of our community. But why would a teacher choose to join a private school faculty when they could teach elsewhere?
Determining which school to send your children to requires more decision making than simply researching which school you’re zoned for. You must also take into consideration what kind of education you want them to get. Every type of school is different and provides varying degrees of service to children and their families.
The children’s toy market is an 89 billion dollar industry worldwide. You’re probably reminded of this every time you take your kids to Target or let them have their TV time for the day. The advertisements are everywhere for all of the brightly colored, noise-making, nerf dart-shooting toys that your children could ever want. But are these toys helping to prepare your children for the future?
