Back to School
Worldwide Pandemic, statewide shutdowns, protests, aliens, murder hornets… The youth of today will have some hard to believe stories to tell their grandchildren about the year 2020. As our story continues to unfold through uncharted territory, guardians are facing the complicated choices of sending their children to school or keeping them home for E-Learning.
Use us as a local resource!
Whether you’re adapting your home and schedule for E-learning or buying classroom supplies, we understand that this can be a challenging time for parents and children alike. You’re not alone. Use us as a back to school resource! No matter your circumstances, Rose Pest Solutions is committed to helping the communities we serve on many levels outside of pest pressures. We believe in education. We believe learning together makes us all stronger. We’re very fortunate to have some of the best partners that share that same mission.
The Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Kohl Children’s Museum, The Chicago Children’s Museum, The Dunes Learning Center, various Park Districts, The Indianapolis Children’s Museum, and so many more friends of ours have all created fantastic lesson plans, videos, art projects, games and other ways to educate nature explorers and bug lovers of all ages. So, we’ve put all of these links together here for convenient back to school educational support. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new content as it comes out!

The educational activities and learning experiences on the website support educational standards from the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). To keep children playing and learning freely, there are no on-site or pop-up advertisements or third-party external links.
