Parenting Webinar Series
Our next webinar in our Parenting in Challenging Times webinar series is on Oct. 16 from 6-7 p.m. Dr. Jill Rosbrugh, child and adolescent psychiatrist from Parkville, will unpack the different faces of childhood worry, talk about the major causes of stress, and share how to develop healthy and effective skills for handling these normal stressors.
You might have heard your child say, “I am so stressed out." You might have seen them overwhelmed, anxious, moody and exhausted. You are likely experiencing your own stress and anxiety about raising a child.
We frequently use the terms "stress" and "anxiety" interchangeably, but children’s stress and anxiety disorders are not one and the same. It is important to understand the difference and to learn the tools that you and your child can use to decrease stress and to manage anxiety. You will also learn what signs are red flags for an anxiety disorder and what steps you can take with your child to get help.
If you can't watch it live, you can watch it online afterward — just register either way. Register for webinar

District Redistricting Overview
In preparation for the opening of Hopewell Elementary and Walden Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year, and in order to balance our very different high school enrollments, we will be redistricting all of our attendance boundaries, from elementary through high school. Redistricting will help us continue to be one of the best districts around by protecting our low class sizes and making sure we can balance our resources.
The redistricting committee meetings will be open to the public, if you want to observe them. We will also host public input meetings and provide an online feedback tool to get your thoughts on the committee's ideas before the Board sets the new attendance areas. Watch for more information about those opportunities later in the fall. The Board plans to make its decision in December.
