One plus one equals twins — five sets of them

Head Start enjoys challenging our children and emphasizing the uniqueness of all our children. This year as in years past Head Start has had several sets of twins. Five sets of twins are currently enrolled.
March is designated as High Five Mathematize Month. The Head Start Family Literacy Center provided each Head Start program a High Five Mathematize Resource Guide. This curriculum provides a wide variety of learning activities to strengthen math skills. Counting to two, adding one plus one to equal two, learning a new word (twin) are some of the fun activities used.

Saving is good ... But it’s not investing

in
Fallin, Randy 2014.jpg

It’s a good thing to have some savings. When you put the money in a low-risk account, you can be pretty sure it will be readily available when you need it. Nonetheless, “saving” is not “investing” — and knowing the difference could pay off for you far into the future.
Think about it this way: Saving is for today, while investing is for tomorrow.

Enemy of investment success: human nature

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: As I look back over the last few years, I must have made every investment mistake in the book. Some of the things I have tried were very popular at the time, but eventually proved to be wrong. How do I keep from making more of these (stupid!) mistakes?
Answer: You suffer from an age old investment malady called human nature. The only solution ever found to work? Have a plan.
You are your own worst enemy, according to Mebane T. Faber and Eric W. Richardson, authors of The Ivy Portfolio, How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets.

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

Even if you didn’t take Economics 101 in college, just navigating through the past several years has given you hands-on experience with one of the course’s most valuable lessons: The rise and fall of interest rates is one of the biggest factors influencing global economies, financial markets, and our daily lives. That’s why it is important to have a basic understanding of how interest rate changes could affect not only your wallet but also your investment portfolio.

Taking time to find friends in surprising places

Irby, Marna.jpg

So much has happened this month, and yet nothing has happened. I say that because many of my plans got canceled when I went to the hospital, yet again, but life has not been dull.
I truly have a full and interesting life going, but sometimes it gets interrupted because of this old body I live in. Before you decide I am ready for the dump, just know that the girl inside is still going strong, and life moves along at a pretty fast clip.

Balloons, buckets and the power of your words

in
Asher, Jemery.jpg

For Valentine’s Day, our family received several heart balloons filled with helium. While they initially floated briskly to the ceiling, the air has begun to leak out, and they do not float as high as they once did.
Much like the helium that keeps a balloon afloat, every person needs to be encouraged to keep from becoming deflated and flat. The word encourage literally means “to inspire courage” or “give support, confidence or hope to (someone).”

State Sen. Rick Gallot spoke to students at Ruston High School as part of a “Legislator’s Back to School” endeavor to encourage high school students to voice their opinions in a representative democracy.
Gallot, who represents District 29, told students their input is important.
“I hear a lot of students say that they don’t feel like their opinion matters to politicians, but that’s not true,” Gallot said. “We’re not celebrities. We’re real people who go through the same everyday issues you do.”
