Summer 2015 is coming to a close and the Emery Village BIA will be hold its annual outdoor Emery Fest event on Saturday, Sept. 12th to welcome in the new season. Please join us at 135 Plunkett Rd. starting at 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. There will be food and lots of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy. We hope to see you there.
Keeping with the theme of changing seasons, it’s school time again and kids will head back to class on Sept. 8. Kids around this time are probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over. Let your kids know that feeling a little scared or nervous on the first day is pretty normal because of all the new things they may encounter like: new friends, new teachers and maybe even a new school.
Someone once gave me good “before the first day of school” advice that I would like to share with you. Help your child become aware of his or her surroundings to and from school; refresh them on road safety and go over emergency tips with them like the dangers when talking to strangers and keeping their eyes open so that they return home safely every day. Taking a quick trip to the school either by car or on foot and highlighting areas that may be problematic will have them prepared for life.
On a final note, let’s enjoy the rest of this beautiful weather and make some more memories with us!
