“Having a successful year can be difficult and that’s why it is important to set intentions early.”
– Carew Papritz
September is the academic honeymoon phase for students, but by October it’s easy for students to fall behind.
This is when grades start to slip, homework gets forgotten and motivation declines.
Literacy Expert Carew Papritz can help!
Papritz is sharing tips and tricks on how to help your kids have the best year yet by making a School-Year’s Resolution.
“Having a successful year can be difficult and that’s why it is important to set intentions early,“ says Papritz.
School has changed since you were a kid. Even young students face a tough list of demands when they walk through those classroom doors. Everything from academic pressure (Common Core testing, meeting state standards, etc.) to social pressure (like where to sit for lunch and how to stand up to bullying).
Whether you are the entering first grade or your senior year, parents want to make sure their kids keep up the motivation.
Papritz is one of the most innovative authors of the 21st century. He is on a mission to promote literacy and curiosity in children through his innovative reading events and one-of-a-kind book signings. These events are a way to bridge the gap between the need for digital stimulation and traditional literacy education.

Carew is encouraging children to get up, get out, learn new things, and most importantly love reading.
