5. PTO Parent Ed Event: Parenting and (Still) Fostering Resilience
Parents often feel like they are running a marathon. Parenting is happening under complex, ever-changing circumstances, further complicated by worry about illness, changes at school, social distancing, and both real and anticipated negative mental health impacts on our kids and teens. Join us for this interactive session about parent resilience, including practical strategies on how we can take care of both our children and ourselves during these challenging times. Event will include a brief presentation with time for discussion and Q&A.
Wednesday, March 16th at 7 PM
Virtual presentation will be one hour followed by a Q&A.
6. Country School Council Meeting
Our next Country School meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 21st at 2:45pm via Zoom. All are welcome to attend. We hope to shift to in-person meetings this spring.
