Do your kids love computers? Check out this new educational coding app!

Do your kids love computers? That’s a rhetorical question, of course—we haven’t met a child who *doesn’t* love devices. Codespark App is an educational app channeling this generation’s tech affinity into an enriching learn-to-code experience for kids 5 to 9. The word-free platform is incredibly engaging, teaching critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative learning using curricula adapted from MIT and Princeton.

Meet Sarah!

Meet Sarah! New-ish to Westport – and mom of two – Sarah teaches at home (and virtual) sessions integrating Pilates, yoga and flexibility practices into one. Formerly an aerial dancer with artists like Lady Gaga, Sarah has been teaching privately for 15 years, and has now brought her SSN Method to our community! Her primary focus is on helping people move their bodies in a way that feels good and strong! After recovering from her own addiction, Sarah is as focused as ever on finding things that bring her – and her clients – joy – and is the biggest cheerleader imaginable, despite being a natural introvert! Sarah loves all things Bravo, wishes she could sing, and has a weakness for Peanut Butter! Sarah’s methods of moving and stretching people’s bodies is truly unique (trust us!!), and she has a gift we are so lucky she has decided to share!

Meet Cara Zimon!

For those involved in any of the last few years of major Westport school decisions and improvements, you likely know and are grateful for Cara Zimon! Mom of three girls (and a Fairfield County native), Cara was a tenured educator in the Greenwich Public Schools for many years, and is currently back in school for her doctorate in Organizational Leadership, all while being active in the Westport community. During COVID, Cara was very involved in supporting home schooled and quarantined students, and most recently, in getting the “Where’s My Bus” app up and running in the Westport district, something many of us are exceedingly excited about! In a past life, Cara danced and performed professionally, and is an advanced open water scuba diver. Today, she swears by her homemade peanut butter, Nordstroms, and loves to travel. Cara’s passion for education, the Westport community, and continued progress is unmatched, and we are truly so very lucky to call her ours!

What? I will hardly see my kids if I get divorced?

Despite historic paradigms of dads getting less time with their children after a divorce than moms, things have shifted tremendously and many parenting plans result in a 50-50 parenting time split. Learn more from Carole Orland at Broder Orland Murray & DeMattie LLC about this shift and the support they can offer

Water Bottle Roundup!

We all know that great intentions can sometimes lead us astray. Case in point, plastic water bottles!  Of course, staying hydrated is a huge priority for us and our children. With fall routines – and lunchbox packing – around the corner, we rounded up eight great reusable water bottle companies you have to check out. We realize that reusable water bottles aren’t cheap.  But if you consider the cost per use, the investment makes sense!
