Information for Parents

We made it! This year has been challenging in so many ways. As the year comes to an end I challenge you to reflect not just on the hardships but on the areas we can express gratitude. In times of crisis it's easy to focus on the challenges we faced. However, what our children need most right now is shifting their focus to their accomplishments, strengths and the power of resiliency.
