When we think of February, many of automatically think of Valentine's Day - a special day designated for showing those extra special people in our lives how much they mean to us. It's all about connection - something that is important not just in the month of February, but all year long. This month's newsletter highlights an article by The Children's Bureau about the importance of connection for our kids through each stage of their lives. Links to fun kid activities are also provided to be used as a tool to build that connection. You will also find information on community resources, a shout out for some awesome staff members, and this month's Parents Make the Difference magazine flyer.
