Summer’s here and it’s time for some fun in the sun. But how do you make sure your kids don’t encounter an educational backslide? Many teachers and parents refer to this phenomenon as the “Summer Brain Drain.”
Spring is in the air and while many are on spring break, heading to a spring training game or spring cleaning, as a math specialist who works with kids of all ages, I can’t help but think of spring as a fun time to reinforce math concepts, especially for the younger set. Recently, I’ve spent a lot of time working one-on-one with children in Pre-K and kindergarten to work on their individual math plans, tailored to their needs. These young learners enjoy calendar time, temperature, time and date — and of course, exploring of the hands-on and “eye spy” variety.
Even during this time of year when everyone would love a few extra practices, there are only so many drills and intra-squad scrimmages to get through before the stale settles in.
The Chandler-Hamilton game went as this rivalry tends to go for 47 1/2 minutes on Friday night.

This Hamilton-Mountain Pointe thingy next Friday night is a big game.

Perhaps the so-called “little things” are aligned.
Two East Valley quarterbacks dominated the headlines this summer.
Sierra Vista - Long road trips, especially for non-section games that weren't necessarily requested to be scheduled, can sometimes cause the traveling team to approach the task more like a burden than a goal-driven event.
Most followers are drooling over the Hamilton vs. Mountain Pointe matchup next week, but this is easily the marquee game of the week, so nobody is putting any carts before the horses here. Speaking of horses, both sides have them aplenty. Chandler showed its vast potential against a good Centennial team in Week 1, then hammered slightly-lesser competition until last week. The Wolves led a top-5 team in the country in St. John Bosco (Calif.) 28-17 at halftime, but Bosco put up 35 points in the second half to pull away. Still, Chandler made little bones about its ability to play with anyone, and that includes Mountain Pointe. The Pride perked up everyone’s ears in beating (Las Vegas) Bishop Gorman in the Barry Sollenberger Classic, but the Pride haven’t been tested to any significant degree since then. Both sides know that will obviously change here, and there’s no reason to think this year’s meeting couldn't be even better-played and just as wild an ending as the 2012 meeting. Which team either scores last, or can stop the other one more time?
Prediction: Mountain Pointe 34, Chandler 31
The Wolves have been one of the most impressive teams in the earlygoing. They easily beat Peoria Centennial in Week 1 and boatraced Sierra Vista Buena from the outset on Friday night. Star wide receiver Dionte Sykes is back from a broken hand, giving the offense yet another weapon. Chandler stays at No. 4 heading into Saturday's showdown against Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, one of the best teams in the country.
The Wolves remain at No. 4 heading into their showdown against nationally ranked Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco on Saturday afternoon. Chandler's victories over Centennial and Buena continue to look better as those teams challenge some of the East Valley's best. The Wolves can make a huge statement by hanging tough or even beating Bosco.
The Wolves are off to a great start with a pair of easy wins against Centennial and Buena. They now begin one of the toughest month-long stretches anyone could imagine, with Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco (2-0), Hamilton and Mountain Pointe all on the docket among the next four games. Bryce Perkins has played very well in his first two games at quarterback, while the team has found a gem in sophomore running back Chase Lucas. Star wide receiver Dionte Sykes caught two touchdowns in his season debut last week while fellow wideout Mitch McCulley also had a score after a quiet first week. Chandler (2-0) likely has the pieces to score, but the biggest question will be how it fares against St. John Bosco’s mammoth line. Bosco is ranked No. 4 in the country by Maxpreps and has few weaknesses. The Wolves may be hard-pressed to pull out a win in this one, but they are one of the few teams from Arizona that has the weapons to keep it competitive.
Prediction: St. John Bosco 42, Chandler 31
