Dear Friends -
It's hard to believe but it's back to school time - back to homework, and after school activities, and the dreaded brown bag lunch (it takes about a week before we've run out of new and creative lunch ideas and we're back to sending in bagels every other day). But before you truly begin to sink in a full-fledged summer withdrawal depression, take heart. Family fun doesn't need to end - there are still tons of great activities to choose from here in New Jersey and around the tri-state region - and the cool, crisp days of Fall are a great time to explore the area. From sites and special events that directly enhance and enrich the lessons our children are learning in schools (check out our website at .... for some history, math, science and art ideas) to a visit to a local zoo, a weekend away at a nearby family resort or a quiet walk along an empty beach, don't stop getting up and getting out.
Back to School is also the time to check out new classes for the kids - there is an activity for every one - sports, art, fashion, science, music and more. We've got a whole slew of ideas on our website - if you're looking for suggestions, we've got them. And that goes for enrichment classes, too. It may only be September, but don't wait for academic problems to become too big - tackle the issues head on by registering for an in-home tutor or one-on-one math, language art, or handwriting class. Here at NJ Kids, we are firm believers that we need to be partners in our children's education and give them a chance to succeed.
So, here's to a smooth and painless return to school. And remember, summer is only 10 months away!
