Decisions, decisions. As parents, we make decisions all day long. These decisions may be big and small, life-changing or irrelevant, and often as easy as yes or no. When deciding on the education for your children, this is an important choice that will impact your child’s future. How does one even begin to decide what type of educational environment will provide the best learning experience for their child? Greensboro Day School has developed a document, 25 Questions to Help Evaluate a School for your Child, in order to make the process easier. Some questions include: How are students supported academically? What is the student/teacher ratio? How are the arts represented? Is there a cafeteria at the school?  To download this document and others that may be helpful, visit Also consider visiting Greensboro Day School. Go to for more information.

PrintSometimes, it’s more convenient to visit a Y in a different location when traveling, it’s closer to work, or you’re in a different region of the state. Now, you can! When you join the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina, you have access to all Ys in N.C., including the 16 YMCAs in our area, as well as the Gateway YWCA in Winston-Salem. Enjoy access to hundreds of group exercise classes, more pool space, Hot Yoga, CrossFit, specialty training centers, and so much more. Now is a great time to join with a $0 joining fee for a limited time. Plus, when you join the Y you’re joining more than a place – you’re joining our cause of strengthening community. Visit for more information or to join online.
