September Tip of the Month from FOCUS:

Welcome to September, the time of year when school is back in session and fall activities are beginning!   How does your family keep track of everything there is to see and do? A family calendar can be a great way for everyone to be aware of what’s happening, so that keeping routines and making plans is a breeze!  Placing the calendar in a common space can help everyone know what is expected from each day, week, and month. Come see us at FOCUS to learn how to put your family calendar together, and learn other skills to make the school transition an A+.  Don’t just get by, get stronger!
