At Appleton Christian School the safety and privacy of our students, their families, the faculty, and the staff is very important. We have provided a secure facility in a wonderfully established neighborhood, and to go along with the physical security we are providing in our facility, we have committed to keeping our website as informative as possible. Therefore, ALL PICTURES OF CHILDREN ON THIS SITE ARE STOCK PHOTOS. If you are considering Appleton Christian School for your child, please take a look around and call me anytime. I would love to talk and answer your questions. It is simple to arrange a visit and a talk with a teacher. I hope we have an opportunity to meet. ~ Jim Meyer, Administrator

Family Meals Help Excel Academic Performance
Studies show that families who eat dinner together benefit in a variety of ways. Eating together helps families achieve better communication and build stronger relationships, children do better in school and are better adjusted as teens and adults, and the entire family enjoys better nutrition.
Family meals help improve school performance. A 1994 survey by Louis Harris and Associates had 2000 seniors take an academic test and answer a list of personal questions. Researchers found that “Students who regularly ate dinner with their families 4 or more times a week scored better than those who ate family dinners 3 or fewer times a week. These results crossed racial lines and were a greater indicator than whether the child was in a one or two-parent family.” Elementary students who ate regular family dinners also scored better than their peers who didn’t. Studies also found that preschoolers whose families ate together had better language skills because mealtime served as an opportunity for them to hear more spoken language and a chance to process adult conversations.
