Request for Extra Clothes

With sloppy spring weather, we are having an increasing number of students coming in asking for a set of dry clothes. There are also times when a student needs a change of clothes due to a rip or spilling a liquid on themselves. Please send an extra set of clothes (underwear, pants and shirt) to keep in your child's locker. Our supply is very limited and we want to make sure your children are comfortable!

Parenting the Love and Logic Way

Parenting the Love and Logic Way

When: March 7, March 14, March 21, March 28, 2022

Where: Oconto Falls Elementary School Cafeteria

Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Who: Parents of ANY age children will benefit

Cost: Sessions are FREE of charge for Oconto Falls School District families ($10 fee for out of district families).

Get ready to laugh, learn and take the exhaustion and frustration out of parenting. The techniques and videos presented will give parents techniques they can use in the heat of the moment…without breaking a sweat.

Love and Logic is a philosophy of raising and teaching children that allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in their interactions with children. Love allows children to grow from their mistakes; logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and Logic puts the parents back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world. Class participants will learn specific “how-to’s” of successful parenting that are simple, practical and easy to use right away.

Presenters: Bill and Cindy Verschay *Independent Love and Logic Facilitators*

A complimentary meal and workbooks will be provided. Complementary child care services available for Oconto Falls School District Families during training for children ages 2 thru 12.
