Week At A Glance – January 15 – 20

We hope that you have purchased your tickets to attend our presentation on Friday evening with Kim John Payne. He is joining us to talk about the “The No Maybe Yes Years: Preparing for Parenting Tweens and Teens”. Don’t be misled by the title, this Parent Education evening is well suited to parents with children ages 8 to 18 or to those who work with youth. As of writing this email, there are only 21 more tickets available, so if you were on the fence about attending, this would be a good time to purchase your ticket now before they are all gone!

Community Coffee Mornings – Join us for coffee or tea each Friday after drop-off between 8:30 and 10:00 am. Stay a while, or just drop in for a bite and a hot drink to start off your day! This is an unstructured gathering to meet other parents and socialize. Contributions of snacks and baked goods are always welcomed, as are volunteers to help set up or clear away at the end.
