Is your child getting enough sleep?

An all-too-familiar struggle for parents is that of bedtime. It can be so hard to get your kids to turn off the electronics, put the toys away, and settle down for a good night’s sleep. It can be tempting to let your kids stay up “just a few more minutes.”. But, according to the National Sleep Foundation, missing just 30 to 60 minutes of recommended sleep can have adverse effects on kids.

Benefits of K-8 Schools

When considering where to enroll your children for school, you will likely be faced with the decision of public vs. private schools. While each have their benefits, we’d like to highlight for you one of the key benefits of choosing a private Catholic school like Saint Cecelia. Saint Cecelia is a K-8 school, meaning students continue in the same school from kindergarten until eighth grade when they are ready to transition to high school.

When Is the Best Time for a Child to Learn a Second Language?

We live in a global community, with electronics and the internet connecting us more closely than ever before. Our communities are no longer contained within neighborhoods or cities but consist of millions of people throughout our country and countries all over the world. Foreign language skills are more important now than they’ve ever been before.

Tips to Prevent Summer Learning Loss

With summer comes a lot of excitement including warm weather, outdoor activities, and family vacations. But for parents, it can also come with worry over summer learning loss for your child. These concerns are not unfounded as studies show that on average students lose two months of reading skills and over two months of math skills during summer vacation.
