I have set this page up to accommodate links for the children and the parents.  I have found these sites by searching for the best places on the web to let your child spend time.  The links for the children are separated into two categories, My Favorite Authors and My Favorite Learning Places.  I hope that you and your child enjoy using these sites together.

I have also found sites for Parents to peruse at your leisure.  There are some helpful sites for you to get acquainted with our town and our school district.  I hope that this page helps to bring you closer to believing that the internet can bring you a wide variety of resources to create a larger knowledge base for you and your child.

I have gathered many links to our own area and district.  You can view some of the sites by clicking on the links located in the District Links section of this page.

Screen It! Entertainment Reviews for Parents - offers a chart with 15 categories from "nudity" to "imitative behavior" to "jump scenes," rates them from "none" to "heavy," and analyzes each category in detail. It then offers a factual plot synopsis, followed by an intelligent review of the film, an explanation of the MPAA rating, and a discussion of suitability for various age groups.
