Coffee with the Counselors: Executive Function in the Adolescent Brain

Are you planning to attend conferences? The counseling team will be presenting to parents/guardians on Executive Function on Tuesday, October 12th at 5 pm and 6pm in the library. Sessions will last approximately a half hour. Scheduling for individual conferences will begin on Monday, October 4th, so feel free to fill any time gaps with us!

Last Call for Thanksgiving Support!

Worthingway is lucky to partner with the Worthington Presbyterian Church this year to provide Thanksgiving meals for families in need this coming November. Through Worthington Presbyterian Church, we are able to provide families with a turkey, fixings, milk, bread, dessert, and more (though specific items may vary a bit year to year). Meals will be ready for pick up on Tuesday, November 23rd at Worthingway.

**If you already requested a meal through the needs assessment, you are already on our list!**

Please email Natalie Fei directly (nfei@wscloud.org) by October 8th if you would like to receive a Thanksgiving meal, and have not yet requested one.
