Adventure Guides wanted
The Cross Timbers Family YMCA Adventure Guides group is seeking new members.
YMCA Adventure Guides is a parent-child program designed to help foster a lifetime of companionship to strengthen the relationship between children and parents.
As an Adventure Guide, you and your child will join a unique “Circle” with whom you’ll participate in games, camping trips, and ceremonies, while fostering a sense of self-esteem, personal worth, and quality family time.
Pre-Kindergarten Papooses (3 & 4 year olds):
This program also builds relationships between father and child (son or daughter.) Papooses are invited to all the national events including camp-outs. This is a great way to get started in the Adventure Guides program.
Kindergarten – 5th Grade Explorers and Princesses:
Father and child participate together in this relationship-building program. Circles meet one to two times per month and have one big expedition event each month.

Scholarships available to students with learning disabilities
IASIS Academy of Lake Dallas is offering four scholarships to benefit new students under the Florence Nevans Star Scholarship Program.
The private school specializes in teaching children in grades one through six with various learning disabilities which include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Disorder.
In addition to the typical curriculum of reading, math, social studies, and science, an emphasis is also placed on teaching students how to interact with their peers on a social level.
Students that wish to apply for a scholarship will be evaluated to ensure that each student selected will have a high probability of success and not necessarily according to the family’s level of income.
Each award will reduce a student’s tuition for the 2011–2012 school year by 75 percent.
Applications can be downloaded from http://iasisacademy.com, or picked up in person at the school located at 112 East Hundley Drive in Lake Dallas and will be accepted through October 21, 2011.
