New Interactive Safety Resource Available!

Interact is an online, interactive e-course created for parents and guardians to complete with their children with the goal of sparking basic online safety discussions in the home. This 30 minute module provides parents with the opportunity to review their own tech use to set a good example; interactive activities to complete alongside their children; and follow-up resources and activities to keep the discussions going.

This e-course gives parents the opportunity to set themselves up as the trusted adult in their child’s life. If the child sees something online they don’t understand or that makes them uncomfortable, they know they have someone to reach out to. The e-course even provides some ideas on how to start and continue these discussions, along with some bonus tips to help break the ice on awkward topics!
Be your child’s trusted adult. Interact, and stay safe!

Fun Fair Silent Auction 2019

Join us Saturday, April 13th

Believe it or not the annual Fun Fair is coming up fast!!!! For those of you who have not experienced it before, the Fun Fair is the biggest PTC annual fundraiser of the year. It takes place here on April 13th and is a huge to-do. It is a carnival type event with games, prizes, food, bingo, and a large silent auction. I have been in charge of the silent auction part of the fair for many years. Lots of time and energy is put into it. Each grade has a theme and we ask families to donate items that go with that theme if they are able. These items are used to help fill the baskets that are auctioned off on that day. (These classroom flyers are attached) I also get many donations from outside businesses; who very generously donate a variety of items.

There are many families within our school who own their own businesses or have some type of home based business. (For example;Tupperware,Thirty-One, LuLaRoe, etc.) There are also some who might like to donate a specific item(s) from your family. If any of this applies to you and you would like to make some sort of donation to this year’s silent auction, please let me know. Please do not feel obligated or feel as though you have to donate. This is just to let you know who to contact if you are interested in doing so.

Thank you very much.

-Child and Adolescent Resilience presented by Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, PA

The teen world can be an extremely stressful one, filled with academic, social, interpersonal, and familial demands, sometimes challenging, sometimes overwhelming. As parents we understand that roadblocks, challenges, periods of frustration will occur. Knowing this, how do we help our children face these times with courage, a clear mind, and a positive attitude? How do we help them, not only to “bounce back”, but also, to thrive during these difficult times?

As one of the nation’s leading authorities in the field of Child and Adolescent Resilience, Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, opens his "tool kit" and offers practical ideas and step by step, concrete strategies for building resilience in our children by developing Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character, Contribution, Coping and Control. Learn how to develop your teen’s personal guide to manage stress. These preventive strength- building strategies may make young people less likely to turn to the quick easy fixes we fear (sex, drugs, self harm, eating disorders among others).

Dr. Ginsburg, a nationally renowned pediatrician, specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Pa., is a leading authority on developing resilience in children and adolescents by creating strategies to build upon their already present strengths. He seeks to bring focus upon the impact of stress on our children and to redefine perceptions of "success". Register Here
