Dear Brittan Acres Families,
I’m excited to share with you some upcoming Parent Education opportunities our district is offering beginning as soon as next week. All San Carlos School District events are free, thanks to funding from our PTA Coordinating Council and support from SCEF and the Sequoia Healthcare District, so please share this with your friends and family who may also be interested.
You can view the complete calendar of events by clicking here (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bPMJs-Up1IX7SllILVPmGIOqrbfHnyk0BHBjhEf-OwY/edit?usp=sharing). This link also takes you to resources from previous events in 2018.
When you click on the link you will see that, in addition to the more typical format of most parent education events that feature a professional speaker, this is the first time SCSD is offering a weekly Parent Support Group which begins next Thursday, January 10 and will be facilitated by Marriage and Family Therapy Associates from One Life Counseling. (One Life Counseling partners with our District to provide three MFT Interns for our students.)
Another great event on January 29 will feature UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital pediatrician, Jane Anderson, M.D.. Dr. Anderson will host more of a workshop-style event where parents can try out tools and discuss habits for building healthy teens. She will also reference the book, Voice Lessons for Parents: What to Say, When to Say It, and How to Listen by Wendy Mogel. Some of you may have heard Ms. Mogel speak at the Challenge Success event last fall, and we think it's a book/topic that applies to parents of children of all ages.
We hope you will be able to attend one of these parent education workshops. If you have any questions, feel free to stop by our office or email me at email@example.com.
