Back To School: Have A Home

Back To School: Have A Home

Whether your kids have already started school or if you still have several weeks left to your summer, it’s never too late or too early to begin to set your stellar student up for success this school year. 

When you child comes home from school, does she know where her backpack and lunch box live?  These items should have a regular landing zone.  It could be a hook next to the child’s desk in her room or in a cubby by the entry door.  Having a consistent place to put these items will make them easier to find and cause fewer headaches during that mad dash out the door in the morning.

Sequester Cuts Affect JROTC Summer Camps
COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say federal budget cuts have trimmed about 75 slots from the JROTC Cadet Challenge Camp at Fort Benning in west Georgia, but 310 students will still take part in the week-long event.
 
Lt. Col. Robert Koester, senior Army instructor at Dooly County High School, said the Army required high schools to trim about $100,000 from the June 10-14 camp under the sequester cuts that went into effect March 1.
 
The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that students from about 30 schools will take part in events which include rappelling, water safety, obstacle courses and jumping from the 34-foot tower at Eubanks Field.
 
Students with the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps live in dorms at Columbus State University during the camp. Buses transport them to Fort Benning daily for activities.
