Parent Education Evening From Seven to Fourteen: Teaching through Feeling with Grade School Teachers Beni Johnston and Lori Johnston at the Grade School Campus

In the Grade School you may have heard that the teachers focus on educating through feeling, but what does this really mean? In this talk we will give an overview of how this is practically applied and why it is so important at each stage of childhood development. The talk will span all 8 grades and will include hands on activities and a Q&A session.

SHIFT Parent Evening For parents grades 8-12 with Jessica Wollen at the High School Campus

In this workshop we prepare ourselves to role model and support youth in developing healthy and appropriate relationships. By exploring and clarifying our personal values, we become more equipped to be an Askable Adult who can provide support, increased safety, scientific facts about body science and advocacy for the youth in our communities.

Enjoy your week and please be in touch if you have any questions.

Thank you,
