School is back in session and kids, teachers and parents have a chance to start fresh. One of the most important relationships you can foster is the one with your child’s teacher. Here are a few A+ tips for doing so this year.
Toward the end of summer vacation, most kids find out who they will have for a teacher for the new school year. In elementary school years most kids have just one teacher, but as they head off to middle school they belong to a teaching team, and high school means even more individual teachers for each subject. Let’s face it, most of us have already decided who we really hope our child will get and who we hope he won’t get. Sadly, many times this is based on hearsay by other parents and not from firsthand experience.

- BACK TO SCHOOL
Thursday, August 2, 2012
Lunch boxes have changed in design and shape over the years, but the basic idea is the same. Along with space inside for a cold drink, sandwich and snack, the cover is devoted to a favorite cartoon, character, TV show or movie. That's why Justin Bieber and Darth Vader and Japanese cartoon characters are staring out at shoppers from the shelves of Target. Back in the '70s, the lunch boxes were aluminum. In the '80s, they gave way to plastic. Vintage lunch boxes now are highly collectible. They are displayed as collections in people's homes, in stores like our own Pop Emporium of Popular Culture, and sometimes they get their own art gallery shows. Do you remember a favorite lunch box? What was it? Have a picture handy? Share it with Patch! …
