Greensboro Day School Summer Camps

summercamp125It is hard to believe summer is almost upon us. It’s time to relax and recharge, right? Sure. Until the kids get antsy, parents need a break, and you need HELP: Greensboro Day School summer camps to the rescue! Greensboro Day School’s summer camps provide organized activities, time for free play, a nurturing and safe environment, and essential time in the outdoors — an experience that offers extraordinary learning opportunities and enduring memories. At GDS summer camps, children are safe to try new things and be proud of who they are. Children do not have to attend GDS to attend summer camps. Instructors are experienced adults who choose to go back to GDS each summer to share their time and talents with your children. Please visit the website today to see all the fun and learning GDS has to offer this summer! Camps are filling up fast, so don’t delay!


etcimageetc. Consignment Shoppe News

etc. Consignment Shoppe has shared an update on their hours and consignment policy. You spoke and  etc. listened. They have extended their shopping hours to Monday-Thursday 9am-7pm, and Friday- Saturday 9am-6pm. Etc. Home hours have remained the same: Monday-Saturday 10am-5pm.

In order to accommodate the large number of consignments that are arriving on a daily basis, the following schedule for bringing in consignments has been updated:

Monday-Wednesday 9am-4pm:  first come first served
Thursday- Appointments every hour and drop & runs only
Friday and Saturday- AM appointments  and drop & runs only

The drop & run policy has allowed existing consignors to bring their items to the store and drop them off any day during business hours. The other benefit is there is no wait time. When you choose this option, etc. goes through your consignment items at a later time, donates any items they can’t sell, and will discard your hangers.  You can, however, pick up any item that hasn’t sold on your given pick up date. Visit the website at and stop in the store at 690 Jonestown Rd, Winston-Salem.


Week of Giving

gen_FBprofile4 (1)Wake Forest Baptist is proud to announce a new tradition of sharing and community outreach via social media—the Week of Giving. During April 25–29, everyone is encouraged to share their personal stories about the Medical Center’s impact on your life. Most of us—particularly parents—have been to Wake Forest Baptist or Brenner Children’s Hospital. In fact, Brenner Children’s saw more than 56,000 patients in 2015. One such patient, who was born with a congenital heart defect and other complications, has been seen in most of the specialty clinics. You can see his story here.

Most people won’t have a story like that, but everyone can participate in the Week of Giving. You can share your story on social media, make a donation … Whatever works for you. To learn more about the Week of Giving and how you can get involved, visit the Week of Giving website.


Favorite Local Playgrounds and Parks

parksSpring has sprung and it is a beautiful time to enjoy the local parks and playgrounds in our area. Our TMoM team has compiled a list of our favorite parks in each area of the Triad. We hope this list will help you discover new parks you may not have known about. You could also use this directory as your “Summer Bucket List” and try to hit each park! They all provide something different that your kids will enjoy. Visit the directory here!
