Parent Education Corner

"The purpose of education has been described by Milton as that of fitting a man 'to perform justly, skillfully, and magnanimously all the offices both private and public, of peace and war.' Provided we do not over stress 'skillfully,' Aristotle would substantially agree with this, but would add the conception that it should be a preparation for leisure, which according to him is the end of all human activity."
– C.S. Lewis, Image & Imagination

Be sure to stop by the office today & pick up  this month's Cultura! and listen to this week's Monday Meal on The Oaks app.
