What’s Your School-Year’s Resolution?

Literacy Expert Shares How to Help Your Child Have the Best Year Yet!

September is the academic honeymoon phase for students.  Kids (usually) have a new teacher so they have a fresh start in the classroom which makes learning more exciting and school more fun.

Unfortunately the “newness” doesn’t last forever because by October many students begin to fall behind. This is when grades start to slip, homework gets forgotten, and motivation declines. 


Literacy Expert Carew Papritz can help!


Papritz is sharing tips and tricks on how to help your kids have the best year yet by making a School-Year’s Resolution. School has changed since you were a kid. Even young students face a tough list of demands when they walk through those classroom doors. Everything from academic pressure (Common Core testing, meeting state standards, etc.) to social pressure (like where to sit for lunch and how to stand up to bullying.) Whether you are entering first grade or your senior year, parents want to make sure their kids keep up the motivation.


“Having a successful year can be difficult and that’s why it is important to set intentions early,“ says Papritz.
