In crowded classrooms, it's easy for the needs of individual children to be overlooked. Despite the best efforts on the parts of teachers and students alike, all children learn at different rates and in different ways. Sylvan Learning Center's nationwide network of tutors and resources seeks to fill in educational gaps and keep flagging students from elementary to high school up to speed.
Whether children struggle with reading, writing, or solving the complex logarithms necessary to get their jetpacks airborne, Sylvan's learning gurus help them chart a course through learning roadblocks. Initial skills assessments determine where students fit into the Sylvan tutoring regimen with a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and interviews. With a greater understanding of the needs of each student, tutors create custom approaches to keep students engaged and in command of the fundamentals.
Classic Fun Center's Layton facility shelters its various attractions in a pirate-themed playground. Guests can rack up strikes on the mini-bowling lanes or ascend a three-story rock wall. The park also hosts a bounce area with inflatable slides and obstacles courses, as well as an arcade with more than 50 games such as skee-ball and Deal or No Deal, where kids teach the computer how to pinky swear. Guests at Classic Fun Center's Riverdale location can cool off on the water park's four 300-foot slides, super-sized "fat" slide, kiddie splash ground, or inflatable slip-n-slide.
A minor-league affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, the Orem Owlz have been perennially dominant in the Pioneer League, winning the title in 2009, 2007, 2005, and 2004. Manager Tom Kotchman directs an athletically gifted roster. Watch the game from a premium seat, so close that you may hear infielders chattering and outfielders humming Norwegian folk songs. This deal also includes two hot dogs, the traditional meal of America's pastime, plus two sodas to wash down the delicious American morsels.
"This is your 'let's be realistic but also make it simple and enjoyable' kind of health company!" Health Movement declares on its website, differentiating itself from its competitors. That's because the company swaps out diet drinks and weight-loss supplements for a program that focuses on mindful eating and combating emotional eating with exercise and plenty of sleep. It recognizes the importance of consistency when seeking long-lasting weight loss and works with each client to help meet goals.
The company's dedication to health shines through in its community involvement, too. Health Movement donates 5% of its profits to its community program, which funds projects including playgrounds and community gardens.
