LD News for Parents

Dear Parent,

We hope you and your family are savoring the summer break, free from the pressures of the school year. But don’t let the new school year sneak up on you, tossing you out of your hammock and into the hustle and bustle of back-to-school season!

In this issue, we’ll help you gear up for the new school year early, thoughtfully, with a relaxed perspective. Just decide what matters most to you and your child, and take some small (sandal-clad) steps toward a successful new year.

The NCLD Team

"The power to hope, to learn, to succeed."
