3 Questions to Ask School Administrators As the New School Year Starts. You Might Not Like All the Answers!


Kids spend a lot of time in school. As a prepared parent, you should take time to make sure that your child is safe and prepared at school like you have prepared at home. Sometimes this isn’t always easy to do because you are dealing with others who might not have the same ideas that you have about preparedness.

On Sunday, June 22, 2014, Richard, from The Apple Seed Project, presented at my church. He shared about the days leading up to and the significance of April 19, 1775. You might know it as the day/evening that Paul Revere rode through New England declaring, “The British are Coming! The Regulars are Out!”

There were a couple of takeaways that I wanted to quickly share, but mostly, I wanted to remind you that the presentation was recorded in case you […]
