Join our bloggers as they share their experiences on the challenges and joys of helping children succeed in school.
Greetings! I'm Carol Brooks Ball and I'd like to personally welcome you to SchoolFamily.com!
As the new editor of the website, I'll be adding articles, tips, how-tos, and more to help you help your children do their best in school. And since successful families and schools enjoy a unique partnership, I'll also be adding articles to help you foster positive interactions with your children's teachers, principals, and other school personnel.
So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, take a few minutes for yourself, and peruse the pages of schoolfamily.com. Check out our sections on academics & studying; how-tos and ideas for home-based activities & tips for learning; our comprehensive grade-by-grade section where we describe, by grade level, what your child will be learning in school in addition to social/emotional milestones; our Healthy SchoolKids pages where we offer tips to keep your kids healthy and in school; and, of course, an entire section dedicated to Back to School.
If you have a specific question, who better to answer it for you than others in the SchoolFamily.com community? Pose your question or dilemma using our Ask a Question section. And don't forget to visit our blog, School Family Voices, where postings range from discussions of how kids learn; ways to stay connected to your child's classroom; and memories of summer vacation.
So again, welcome. And please let me know how we're doing. Best,
Carol Brooks Ball
