For a lot of our communities, school and other activities start up on Tuesday!

If you're planning for a new group of kids (or adults), here are three community-building activities to do instead of traditional ice-breakers.

New schedules can be rough on kids (hey, on humans, actually) -- so it's important to take some active steps to make sure that your family is getting the sleep they need now that school is starting!

We encourage our students to use their creativity to create their characters by observing the world around them and doing their research -- just like Disney's original core animators, the "Nine Old Men".

The work of animators like Disney's Nine Old Men has inspired generations to continue exploring these classic characters through make-believe, music, movies, and plays like ours at Compass Creative Dramatics!

Stretch your own creativity today and inspire others with your work!

Happy Monday!

If you've got a little home with you this morning, check out this episode of Busy World together, and then head outside to watch the eclipse (but don't look directly unless you've got official solar protection glasses!).

If you're planning to watch with kids, check out these tips from NASA:
