One major theme for the Summer issue seems to be providing ways to help ourselves and others achieve our/their best. For this back to school season, there are great suggestions to help a reluctant reader gain a love of reading, help students overcome past adversity to achieve their high school diplomas, and how to calm a child who is anxious about going to school. In addition, whether it is providing guidance on how to – easily – put the “quality” in quality time with your children, improving a child’s diet and getting them to participate in planning a meal with fresh, Upick produce, or sneaking veggies into dinners, our community has again provided us with a great deal of information.
But there is more! Although back to school time is looming ever nearer, there is still plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors – especially here in the foothills. Don’t miss out on opportunities for hiking, camping, and so many other activities by checking-out the Family Activities section.
In the Family Living section, the Car Guy shares recommendations for the best vehicles for your family needs even while considering the budget. Learn why steam cleaning is a great cleaning solution – and not just for floors! In All About Pets, the SPCA provides information about their Humane Education program designed for children and their schools and a local veterinarian shares words of wisdom about our furry family members.
In finishing, we at the PRG would again like to thank Nevada City Parks and Recreation and all the vendors and families who made this year’s Camp and Activities Fair a great success! Have a great rest of the summer!
