Time: 12:45 – 1:15 p.m.

Location: Clark Library

Nearly half of middle school students in FISD report having some symptoms of anxiety. So, what is everyone worried about? From test anxiety to relationships, problems surround us, but how do we cope? Join FISD Student Assistance Coordinators, Andrea Erwin and Ann Nickel, in exploring middle school stress and ways to cope.
