 Keep your kids reading this summer
Keep your kids reading this summer
Summer Learning Day is on June 19, and in celebration, the Arkansas Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is offering you a chance to win a $100 Walmart gift card. Why is summer learning important?

Very young kids often use tablets, smartphones

 "Inside the Springdale School District"
School District Horace Mann once said, "The public school is America's greatest invention." For parents who have their children enrolled in public schools and who are directly connected to their schools as volunteers, PTA members, booster club members, WatchDOG dads, Safegate moms, mentors, etc., again I expect that upon reflection they would concur with the sentiment expressed by Horace Mann. Clearly there are other sentiments that are expressed by public school dissidents and special i....

Cursive writing mandatory of Arkansas curriculum
When it comes to written communications, before the advent of smartphones, texting and computers, cursive was the way to go. Examples of cursive writing date back to the time of the Romans, but like Latin, cursive writing appeared to be a dying form of communication. With people typing more rather than writing, cursive has been falling by the wayside. Many schools even stopped teaching children cursive writing, and the Common Core Standards do not include the subject. It is been no different ....
