Boarding Opportunity: Our very own Kelvin Zhao (11th Grade) is looking for a boarding situation from Christmas Break through the end of the school year. He has been staying with his sister for the last year and a half and she will graduate from the U of I in December. He wants to live with a Christian family so that he can go to church with them every Sunday and grow more in Christ. A typical range for boarding a high school student for half a year is $3,000-$4,500.If you are interested in finding out more about Kelvin, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Study Tip for the Week
Busy dads need to have a system for staying in touch with how their kids are doing in school. Don’t wait for the midterm progress report to come home and get your attention. Require your child to drop off all graded and returned schoolwork at your spot at the dinner table right when he gets home (or some other convenient spot). Before dinner you can look through the pile to check progress. This will also give you the information required to ask intelligent questions during dinner about the topics that are being covered in school.
Guidelines for Keeping Sick Children Home
Colds: Please keep your child at home if he has a fever over 100 degrees or is experiencing discomfort that would interfere with his ability to perform in school (i.e. uncontrollable coughing, severe lack of energy).
Conjunctivitis (pink-eye): Follow your doctor’s advice for returning to school.
Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and / or vomiting should stay at home and return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.
Fever: The child should remain at home with a fever greater than 100 degrees. The child can return to school after he has been fever free for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin).
