A Northtowne Event and Community Alerts
Family Movie Night
Inside Out is great movie to watch before starting discussions with your student about emotions and emotional wellbeing. This movie encourages us to embrace the wholeness of ourselves and give ourselves permission to feel big and sometimes messy emotions. It also encourages that we have to give those around us a chance to work through their emotional realizations. It's not about trying to avoid uncomfortable feelings but rather go towards them to get honest with ourselves and grow.
This is a Tuesday evening event. There is no school the next morning, March 29th.
**Please note that an adult must accompany students to this afterschool event.**

Help as COVID-Era SNAP Benefits End
In March, additional COVID-era Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits have come to an end. For Ohio families receiving help in buying groceries through SNAP, this means monthly benefit amounts will be cut significantly as program payments go back to pre-pandemic levels.
To help SNAP recipients and the public understand and prepare for this change, our partners at the Mid-Ohio Food Collective (MOFC) has prepared answers to some frequently asked questions. Families who have general questions about SNAP or who need help applying for other benefits can contact MOFC’s Benefits and Customer Outreach Team at 614-782-5503 or use the link below.
