Summer is in full swing here in Northville, Michigan. For many families, this is the best time of year. It is the few months each year when you can finally forget coats and gloves and really enjoy the outdoors in our beautiful area. Plus, the kids are out of school, and you can spend some quality time together as a family. 

The challenge, however, can be staying cool while the mercury rises. 

Here are eight tips for getting a break from the heat that parents and kids can enjoy together. 

Summer is quickly approaching for students in Northville, Michigan. We are nearing the completion of the second strange school year in a row. However, unlike last year, for most students, it was increasingly normal. Many were able to return to in-person learning, participation in sports and the arts, and spend time with friends. 

While the global pandemic is not entirely behind us, we have certainly taken steps toward returning to normalcy. As parents and families finalize summer plans, they might actually resemble past summer breaks with vacations and camps. Schedules are filling up quickly. 

The break is good for students who need the opportunity to recharge after what can be a stressful ten months of trying to keep up with assignments and grasping new concepts. However, children never stop learning. For parents, it is important to help facilitate education through the summer. This will help ensure they are ready for the start of the new school year and prepare them for life. 

In this article, we are providing 8 tips for keeping the learning going all summer long.

Spring is a strange time in the life of a student. On the one hand, it is nice to see the snow melt and flowers begin to bloom. For a kid, it is nice to go outside without a thick coat and winter gloves. However, it is also the time of year when school can be the most difficult. Assignment due dates begin to pile up, and it can feel like they are drowning in a sea of urgency. 

By the time we reach March and April, the sprint to the finish of the school year is underway. However, many students feel like they are already several laps behind.

We want to help you encourage and support your students as they try to finish the school year strong. Here are seven tips for helping your child run the race to the end of the school year.

While we have been fortunate to maintain in-person classes, many elementary schools have utilized remote learning at various times.

While it can be rewarding to see your child learning and growing, it is often challenging to help them study. In this article, we are celebrating parents who take an interest in their children's education. We are also providing tips for how to develop effective study habits for elementary school students.

As COVID-19 cases continue to decline throughout Michigan, we are looking forward to ending the school year strong.
