Can you believe that the start of school is only two full weeks away. We still have lots of awesome activities planned for the rest of the summer, with trips to Reno, the Skate Park, water days and of course the party to beat all end of summer parties on the 24th August.
The summer is flying by and before we know it the kids will be back at school. But not before the Club hosts an end of summer party to rival all end of summer parties – EVER! Once again, the Angel of Tahoe, Lisa Maloff is kindly hosting the event, which this year will be held from 10am to 4pm on FRIDAY 24th AUGUST at our main Club Site (1100 Lyon's Ave).
From 1997 to 2008, peanut allergies in children more than tripled in the USA and no-one knows why. There are many theories, from our environments becoming cleaner with fewer natural infections in childhood, to increased use of medications reducing our immune system, or simply the way peanuts and peanut products are now processed.
It is true that idle hands or minds can lead to trouble, but even more importantly, idle minds can result in a decrease in educational attainment. Studies have indicated that a child that does no academics over the summer will take until Halloween to be back at their pre-summer level. Here at the Club we do an hour of 'Brain Gain' every day of the summer. Simple, fun but educational activities that focus on reading and math. Doing Brain Gain ensures that our members retain all their learning from the prior school year and start the new year ready for the next level.
