Fall is for Family
The teachers, staff, children, and families that make up The Academy truly are a family. We do lots of things together as a family, but we want to encourage you to spend some quality time with just your family too. That’s why in October and November our emphasis is “Fall is for Family.”
Spending Time Together as a Family
Fall offers wonderful opportunities for family fun, making memories, and reaching out to other families in the community. All kinds of learning and child development take place spontaneously when you spend time together as a family:
- developing motor skills
- expanding the imagination
- cooperating and maturing emotionally
- making decisions
The cool, crisp Fall weather is perfect for outdoor activities. Consider visiting a pumpkin patch or picking apples at an orchard. Camping out (or in) can be fun especially when it includes roasting marshmallows.
When the weather is too chilly to be outside, you can have a movie night or game night with special food. You could also have a craft night to make homemade decorations for the holidays.
Reaching Out to Families in the Community
Fall is also a time when local charities need more volunteers and donations than other times of the year. Your family could help others by serving meals at a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter. You could also donate to a coat drive, your local food pantry, to your church outreach programs, or to one of The Academy programs for the needy.
