Let's Talk about Anxiety: Community Viewing of "Angst"

Through the generous support of KyleCares, the King Philip, Norfolk, Plainville & Wrentham School districts will host Angst, an Indie Flix original documentary, to raise awareness around anxiety. With an emphasis on children and adolescents, the film provides parents a candid look at symptoms of anxiety and tools for coping, while increasing help seeking and hope. Discussion with a panel of school and community professionals will follow the viewing.

The documentary is suitable for children ages 10 and up who may wish to attend with their parent.

Healthy Weight and Your Child

We are now enrolling for the Spring session of Healthy Weight and Your Child at the North Attleboro Branch of the Hockomock Area YMCA. This supportive small group program engages the whole family in healthy habit discussions and physical activity. We meet twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) from 5:30-7:30 for 15 weeks. To qualify, children aged 7-13 must be in the 95% of BMI and be cleared by their pediatrician for physical activity. Children attend each session with a parent or guardian. Families will receive a no cost family membership to our YMCA for the duration of the program. This class will begin with a Family Information Session on Monday February 10th, and will start Monday February 24th.
