Back to School Blog with NEW School Funding Information

A new school year has begun, and parents and students alike are hopeful they will have a better experience than during the last few years. What will make the difference? Today as never before, parents and grandparents need to take the responsibility in the education of their children. In Arizona, families now can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, homeschooling, and micro schools due to the new expansive provision signed by Governor Ducey, according to a news release on July 7, 2022. Arizona families who participate would receive more than $6,500 per year per child for private school, homeschooling, micro schools, tutoring, or any other kinds of educational service that helps meet the needs of their students outside the traditional public school system. As parents and grandparents, we need to take responsibility for what is being taught to our youth. We pay taxes for the government schools in our area. For that reason alone, we need to find out what is being taught from elementary through high school levels to our children and grandchildren. Our voices are required more now than ever before. Here are some hints to help students in school: Turn off electronic items at least 30 minutes before getting at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Eat as healthy as possible, including fruits, vegetables and meat and eggs for good brain power and physical growth and prowess. Drink water, not sodas. Sit little and move much. Chores, outside activities, sports and work help build character and require movement and thinking skills. Spend 15 minutes each day on homework or study. Get tutoring help from Stilwell’s Learning Center as needed. Read good books rather than spend too much time on phones.
