Tips for Kindergarten Parents

Tips for Kindergarten Parents

Where did the time go? Wasn't it yesterday that you brought the baby home from the hospital? It's back to school time again and for those sending a child to kindergarten, it can be quite emotional... for parents anyway. Kindergarten is a special time and you'll begin seeing pay off on your hard work over the past 5 years. For most this will be the first full school day, the first year to ride the school bus, the first year to have homework, and the first year when peer influences begin to play a role.

Tools 4 School

Tools 4 School

ATLANTA -- Can you believe it’s just a few short weeks before the school bus will be rounding the block again?

Act Together Ministries needs your help to collect school supplies for children in need in five north metro counties: Forsyth, N Fulton, Cobb, Cherokee, and Gwinnett. With your help, we will set up our 4th annual school supply “store” that allows children the opportunity to shop for their own school supplies. The children love picking out their favorite color backpack, selecting pencils with a preferred cartoon character, and getting the exact items listed on their school supply list. Parents in our program contribute $5 toward the event so that they have the honor of taking ownership. No one wants to wait in a hand out line and be labeled “Needy.” In addition to receiving school supplies, the children get haircuts, medical/dental screening, lunch, and enjoy crafts, games and other fun activities.

Local Couple Sows Seeds of Gardening and Healthy Eating for Kids

Local Couple Sows Seeds of Gardening and Healthy Eating for Kids

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- With childhood obesity rates on the rise and consumers becoming more disconnected from where their food originates from, the outlook is bleak for a healthy and self-sustaining next generation. A ray of hope shines through with a charming new book teaching children that gardening, eating healthy, and spending quality time with family are not only good for you, but also enjoyable!

From the beginning of time, parents have passed down knowledge to children about how to prepare, plant, pick, preserve, and cook their own food. Unfortunately, that lineage has waned significantly. With the popularity of fast food restaurants, microwave dinners, and processed foods, our kids' waistlines have increased and healthy diet education has gone down.
