Presenter: Elizabeth Cotter, M.S., L.P.C., Effective School Solutions
How do we evaluate what a child’s behavior is trying to communicate? Behavior is a form of communication which is especially important when a child has limited means of expressing themselves or has neither the developmental level or psychological capacities to “tell us” how they are doing and how we are doing with them. This workshop develops the ability to appreciate and understand the behavioral relevance and messaging of children.
Grad Nite Live
Grad Nite Live Preview
Join us for the Free Annual Spring Family Tradition!!
Bring the whole crew - all ages young and old - to view the secret theme at Marshfield High School on June 4 from 7-9 p.m. You can walk through the decorated areas in 15 minutes, or take your time. Past years themes include Harry Potter - complete with floating candles and iconic scenes; Disney Pixar with a GIANT Sponge Bob to hug and get a photo; scenes from books come to life; along with giant game night boxes and play-doh jars…Be immersed in a theme with murals and props, (one year an entire hallway was set up to experience being underwater with all the fish)…take pictures (but PLEASE don’t post until June 5!!)
Each year many hands in the community help to transform MHS for an all-night party (11p.m. - 5 a.m.) for the graduating seniors. GNL has been the town’s gift to the graduating class for over 20 years to keep them safe in an alcohol and drug free celebration. They enjoy lots of activities while spending their last time together as a class. The theme is a surprise, so we can’t tell you what it is…but we guarantee it’ll be fun!
Volunteers of all ages help create the decorations during April and May. Grad Nite Live coordinators guide volunteers so they can contribute no matter their talent level! The GNL Preview is a great way to talk about ways to enjoy big celebrations safely. Even an hour of volunteer work in lots of different capacities can showcase your commitment to healthy choices.
Mark your calendar and see the biggest party setting you can imagine!!
We are always looking for volunteers. You can sign up here!
