Students Say “Libraries Rock!” With New Summer Reading Prizes

Schools and librarians are working hard this month to help students prevent the dreaded “summer slide,” by encouraging them to register for the Summer Reading Fun program at Forsyth County Public Library.

Studies show that reading over the summer can help students retain more of what they learned during the school year and perform better when school starts again in August. A study from Dominican University even suggests that children who participate in summer reading programs have better reading scores by the end of third grade than students who did not participate.

“We even encourage preschoolers who can’t yet read independently to sign up and track the books that parents and caregivers read with them because it helps the child acquire early literacy skills and it sets them up for success when they get to kindergarten,” says Programming Manager Tracy Walker.

Over the last month, the library’s youth services team visited local preschools, elementary schools, and middle schools to lead assembly programs and talk with students about exciting changes to the summer reading program. This year’s summer reading theme is “Libraries ROCK!,” making for some very musical – and often hilarious – stories, skits, and puppet shows.

“Summer Reading in Forsyth has changed dramatically this year and the response we’ve already heard from students, teachers, and even parents, has been wonderful,” says Walker.

Instead of paper-based reading trackers, the library adopted new software that allows patrons to track their reading online. Rather than choosing one book for setting and reaching a summer reading goal, patrons can now earn points to exchange for new books, as well as a variety of other prizes.

“We want to encourage our patrons to read, but our new program also appeals to different learning styles and inspires extended learning in music, art, languages, physical activity, and helping others. These are all things you can do or learn about – for free – at the library,” adds Walker.

Registration for the summer reading program is open now on the library’s website at www.forsythpl.organd patrons of all ages are welcome to sign up, earn points, and win prizes.

When readers in preschool and grades K – 12 reach 100, 250, and 500 points, they can choose from such prizes as a small Frosty from Wendy’s, an action pass from Stars & Strikes, a Laser Quest pass, a new book, or other prizes while supplies last. Upon reaching 500 points, these participants are also entered in random drawings for such grand prizes as an eReader, Horseback Riding Adventures from Gold City Corral, Urban Escape Games passes, or a mountain bike or cruiser bike donated by Zaxby’s.

Adults who reach 500 points can enjoy the prize-winning fun, too. Adult readers will be entered in random drawings for one of several grand prize gift baskets, theater and movie tickets, services from local businesses, and eReaders.

Library leaders have been building relationships with sponsors and soliciting donations since January. Their work is evident in the nearly $30,000 worth of prize donations received from 34 local businesses and book donations from the FCPL Friends & Advocates, the non-profit organization that operates the Friends Bookstores inside the Cumming, Post Road, and Sharon Forks Libraries.

“We’re very fortunate to have a community that believes so strongly in the power of education and the importance of literacy that they’re willing to contribute so generously to the summer reading program. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from each of our donors and sponsors,” says Walker.

Aside from registering for summer reading, it’s become a tradition for families to begin the summer with with the library’s series of Summer Reading Kick-Off Carnivals.

The Cumming Library’s Carnival will be held at the library on Wednesday, May 30 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and will feature performances from Cameron’s One-Man Circus and balloon art from Once Upon a Fiesta, in addition to kid-friendly carnival games and prizes.

The fun continues on Thursday, May 31 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. as the Hampton Park Library’s Carnival also celebrates the start of summer with circus performances, balloon art, and games.

Once again the Post Road and Sharon Forks Libraries are teaming up to present a Kick-Off Carnival on Friday, June 1 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Forsyth Conferece Center, 3410 Ronald Reagan Blvd., Cumming. The event will include two family-friendly acrobatic performances by Barely Balanced, plus Mr. Michael from The Learning Groove will appear in concert at 5:00 p.m.

Admission to each of the Summer Reading Kick-Off Carnivals is free and all ages are welcome to attend. Space at the acrobatic and concert performances will be limited and early arrival is recommended.

Following the Kick-Off Carnivals, Forsyth’s libraries will present more than 400 programs before school starts again in August.

“There’s something for patrons of all ages at each of our libraries year round, but especially this summer,” explains Walker. “We’ve got a new summer book club for parents of elementary and middle school students and local celebrity angler Ken Sturdivant is teaching a series of eight classes on fishing in Lake Lanier. We’ve scheduled musical performances and art programs for children and adults, special events just for tweens and teens, plus we’ve gone all-out with the storytimes and science-based programs our young patrons love.”

Walker encourages patrons to pick up a Summer Program Guide for their preferred library branch, or check the library’s online events calendar to sort and view programs by age and location.

Summer Day-Ventures at Pinot’s Palette

Summer Day-Ventures at Pinot’s Palette

How does 3 hours of screen-free creativity where children can explore the artist within and learn new painting techniques in a pressure-free environment sound? I’d say it sounds pretty fabulous to me! Pinot’s Palette Summer Day-Ventures are designed for children 5-11 years old, though siblings are very welcome to join in the fun as we create a painting, craft project and play games based on the theme of the day. They plan a craft and games based on same/similar themes to challenge the campers to keep thinking creatively. There’s a theme for every week and a new painting each day. All art supplies provided. You are welcome to sign up for a day, two days or three days!

This year they have also added an Early Bird Special for signing up for an entire set of sessions. If you signup before May 15th using the Early Bird links listed in the registration section, you get a substantial discount over 3 sessions!

Have questions? Please contact our studio (770.783.1783 or johnscreek@pinotspalette.com) anytime!


Pinot’s Palette opened for business on May 6, 2009. Our first location was a cozy, local studio in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston, TX. Being a new concept, we started small, with the hopes of hosting a wine and painting class three nights a week.

Before long, word spread, and now we have paint and sip franchise locations from coast to coast and internationally.

Together, we’ve created over one million paintings with our customers. And while we haven’t counted the corks, our guests have enjoyed plenty of wine with friends along the way.

We love being your go-to spot to relax, unwind and let loose. From date nights to birthdays and bachelorette parties, our paint parties are a unique way to celebrate all of life’s special moments – even if the occasion is just called “Friday.”

Pinspiration DIY Makers Summer Camp 2018

Join Pinspiration in June and July 2018 at Pinspiration Georgia, located at Vickery Village. During DIY Makers Summer Camp, they will keep the kids nice and busy while you work, shop and get stuff done! Every day of camp has a different theme and matching DIY Pinterest craft and activities. This camp is perfect for ages 5-12. Sign up here.
Did you know that Pinspiration has been voted as the Best Day Camp? It has!  Makers Gonna Make is a slogan you will hear tossed around in Pinspiration and it’s the perfect description. If your child loves to craft, then DIY Maker Summer Camp is the place for them.
At camp, boy and girl campers will learn to build their own Pinspiration-Inspired project. They don’t have one particular project each day but, rather, let the kids choose from a variety of fun do-it-yourself theme (Pinterest-inspired) options. The main project choice is something more substantial, such as the project in the “Kids Makers” section of the website.  In addition, the campers will create several smaller projects each day. Wood projects such as signs and art crate totes are good main project examples.

The DIY Makers Summer Camp is wildly popular, award-winning and child-focused. They tend to keep class sizes small so we get a ton accomplished and the kids have a lot of fun.  We have options that appeal to both boys and girls from about age 5-12 years.  Each day of camp is $45, regardless of number of days enrolled.

Create Memories Together on a Family Cruise

Create Memories Together on a Family Cruise

Planning the perfect vacation for everyone in the family to enjoy can be daunting. The younger kids want energetic playtime. Older kids want to do something new and different, but still want to sleep in. Dad wants good food. And Mom wants it to be easy and memorable. What one trip can meet all those requirements? A family cruise!

Family cruising is a very popular way to vacation. According to Cruise Line International Association (CLIA), nearly one third of all cruisers in 2017 sailed with their children aged 13 and under. Also, 40% of cruise travelers say they chose a cruise for their vacation because of the amenities available specifically for their children. After the trip, 9 out of 10 parties traveling with children report they were satisfied with their vacation.

DCL MDS: STILLS

Let me tell you why I love taking the family on cruises:

  • Explore the world. On their first cruise, my youngest son said, “We go to bed in one place and wake up in a whole different country!” It’s so convenient to unpack once and visit several places in just a few days’ time. On a 7-night Caribbean cruise, you can visit Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. On a 10-night Baltic cruise, you can visit Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland, and Sweden. On a 7-night Mediterranean cruise, you can visit Spain, France, and Italy. Imagine exploring these amazing destinations with the kids!
  • So much is included. Accommodations, all-day buffet, dinner in the dining rooms, parties on the pool deck, live music all day, a variety of recreation options, child care centers for toddler through 11-years old, designated tween and teen activities, are all included in the cruise price. Things that can be added to a cruise reservation at an additional cost: shore excursions, beverage packages, onboard wifi, spa visits, specialty dining, and casino visits.
  • Excellent customer service. Every day, your room steward will clean your stateroom. Every night, he’ll turn down the room, prepare your beds, and leave towel animals for you. You can have the same wait staff in the dining room for every meal, and they’ll get to know your preferences and dietary needs. Childcare counselors are educated and trained to make sure your kids have a fun and safe experience.
  • Something for everyone. My husband likes to be active when he vacations. On a cruise, he competes in every ping-pong and free throw tournament. I like to nap and read on a vacation. You’ll find me on a heated lounge chair in the spa enjoying the ocean view. My kids (11 & 13) like to hang with new friends. They’ll spend their days at sea in the tween lounge, movie theater, or sports deck. We all come together for dinner and the nighttime entertainment. And we enjoy shore excursions together. On our last cruise, we swam with dolphins in Cozumel—amazing! I love that cruising gives us the perfect balance of independence and family time.
  • Special activities for families.Disney Cruise Line offers fun Star Wars and Marvel themed sailings, plus a pirate night with fireworks and Halloween and Christmas parties seasonally. Royal Caribbean provides meet-and-greets with DreamWorks characters on many of its sailings. Royal Caribbean is also the only cruise line that offers Autism-friendly ships, providing extra assistance for families with children on the spectrum.

For every family, the number of vacations we’ll be able to take together is limited. Make the most of the time you have by choosing a vacation destination where you’ll explore new places, try new foods, experience new adventures, and create lasting memories together. With family cruising, you’ll be able to do all of that and more.

For personalized help planning your cruise, contact your travel agent. Need an agent who specializes in Disney and Universal destinations as well as cruises? Email me at jessica@travelmation.net.

As an Authorized Disney Travel Planner, and a mom to two tween boys, Jessica has fully experienced every thrill attraction and enjoyed everything Star Wars at Walt Disney World. She knows how to save the day with the Marvel heroes at Disneyland. And she knows the award-winning service and relaxed fun aboard the Disney Cruise Line.

We use Biblical philosophies, principles, scripture and values to lead our dancers to not only a future in dance, but also a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. We are not a church, but we are a place where people can come to feel loved, accepted and lifted up in their daily lives. Although we enjoy helping our students explore their Faith, we do not discriminate or follow any particular doctrine or denomination. We merely love as Christ loved and work to create a positive and uplifting atmosphere where every student has the chance to be both challenged and successful! We also make sure that our students are always modestly dressed and use age appropriate and conservative music and choreography. We spend a tremendous amount of time making sure that we are honoring God with our bodies and our choreography at all times. We use dance as a way to move our audience and Glorify God.

The camp is wildly popular, award-winning and child-focused. We tend to keep class sizes small so we get a ton accomplished and the kids have a lot of fun.
