Construction News

You have probably noticed the fencing, dumpsters and porta-potty near door #2. Things are happening inside as well! The library looks amazing and the demo has begun in the old office space near door #2.

*Please make sure you do not use the sidewalk that cuts through the circle drive. The dumpsters are in the way and it is not a safe place to cross the drive.

Sneak Peek at Library Renovation! More to Come!

April Parent Counseling Newsletter

April Newsletter- Supporting a growth mindset


April SPANISH- Supporting a growth mindset

In this edition, you will find tips to support your child's self-talk, growth mindset phrases to model and ways to respond to a complaining child. Thank you for entrusting your child to us and partnering with us to support the growth of your child.

Move Forward - WEF Wellness Campaign

The annual WEF Walk, Run & Wellness event has been held each spring for the last 10 years. This year, in the spirit of moving on from a crazy last 12 months, we present you with a MONTH LONG wellness program that kicked off Sunday, March 28th and runs through April 24th appropriately named MOVE FORWARD. Why the change? We decided we needed to do something different, and we decided that this year was the perfect year to do it. Rather than a single day event that came with a price tag to participants, we have moved to a (mostly) virtual platform with some fun twists and some competition built in too! Visit our event landing page for complete event information. Be sure to log ANY activity that you have been doing!
