"Back to school" is just around the corner for our Berkshire County children. The new school year can be an adjustment challenge for the whole family – but your children's health can remain strong during this busy transition, and on into the school year.

At CHP Berkshire Pediatrics, we'd like to set you and your children and teens on a path to a healthy school season, with some helpful reminders and tips about sleep, stress, food safety and the importance of "downtime." And some advance planning can help to smooth the transition to the school year – regardless of whether you kids are in preschool, high school, or somewhere in between.

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has been trying to make the change a little easier for first-year students in its science, technology, engineering and math programs through the Berkshire Bank STEM Academy.

Now in its sixth year, the academy offers five days on campus meeting professors and likely classmates and trying out the labs in the new Feigenbaum Center for Science & Innovation. The program is entirely funded by Berkshire Bank.
