The holidays have arrived! I received my first dusting of snow this weekend and the radio stations have already started to play classic carols. Soon we’ll be seeing candles in the windows and children riding sleds, building their very own snowmen.
In more recent years, the retail industry has started to capitalize on the busiest shopping season of the year. We all know about Black Friday — the day after Thanksgiving. Recently, the industry has included Small Business Saturday (dedicated to supporting local businesses), Cyber Monday (the best holiday deals online), and Giving Tuesday (donating to your local charities).
As you and your household prepare for the season, remember to stop and think about your education…and those in the world who are still struggling to learn how to read.
Small Business Saturday — November 28, 2015
On Small Business Saturday, remember to choose a local company for tutoring.
North Coast Education Services has been locally owned and operated
since we opened our doors in 1985.
As a small business, we are able to donate more time and energy
to customizing tutoring to fit each individual student’s needs.
Shop Small on November 28th. Consider NCES.

Cyber Monday — November 30, 2015
The Creative Education Institute (CEI) is the
non-profit partner of North Coast Education Services.
CEI sponsors the annual Academic Fun & Fitness Camp
for students ages 6 – 19 with learning differences.
On Cyber Monday, support CEI through AmazonSmile.
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases
to the Creative Education Institute.
You shop online the same way. Amazon gives to education.

Giving Tuesday — December 1, 2015
The Academic Fun & Fitness Camp is preparing
for its 15th season in the summer of 2016.
Reading and math skills are combined
with a wide variety of social activities — including
theatre arts, non-competitive sports, pet therapy, and more!
On Giving Tuesday, consider making a donation
to the Academic Fun & Fitness Camp.
Your donation will help provide camp scholarships
to several well-deserving families.
