Happy New Year!  We all hope for a good 2011! At the top of our list are two goals: 1) "Think of every way we can to promote local businesses and help them thrive!" and 2) "What kind of information can we bring to parents that will help them make choices?"

 

Remember to 1) post your upcoming classes in the Class / Sports & Camp Calendar because we are directing traffic there through our newsletters and on Tuesday on our homepage and 2) Post your events (Open houses, the start of a new series) in the Events Calendar.

 

Write an article for us!  Below is our 2011 editorial calendar for the 52 weekly parent and 12 monthly business updates.  It's subject to change and additions!  We welcome your suggestions and often insert topics not on the list.  We like to feature articles by you!  Think about questions parents frequently ask you or do you have an avocation about which you are passionate?  Include a three sentence bio about yourself and your business and we shall include a link to your listing or website.

To a great 2011 for you! Parmalee
