This Month's Issue

Although it feels like the sun just started shining, it's already time to de-feralize the kids and get back into the school routine. Our feature, 50 Ways to Rock the Back-to-School Transition offers tips to help the family sleep better, eat healthier and adjust to a new school year. 

While you may have one or more kids to worry about this school year, Denise Juneau, (Seattle Public Schools newest superintendent), has 53,000 kids to watch over. Read about her plans to focus on community outreach and connection this year.

We all know August is a good time to get organized but it's also the perfect time to have one last memorable, summer adventure. Get inspired with our 10 Awesome August Adventures.

So, with that, we wish you a happy end to summer and a productive, not crazy, start to school.
