Our district’s elementary school counselors are thrilled to announce our 2nd stallation of our Family Wellness Series, which will be held on Tuesday, April 24th at 6:00pm- 8:00pm. We are beyond excited to hold this health and wellness event!


Join us as we hear from three presentators from our community engage and educate on the importance of nurturing the mind, body, and soul. Our community experts are very eager to share their expertise in areas such as: effectively communicating with children, the importance of a healthy diet and nutrition, and how impactful mindfulness as on our wellbeing!


“When we connect with ourselves and others we can unlock the keys to nurture, empower, and connect. By this, we unlock something invaluable!”


Their message is one that we strongly stand by and cannot wait to share it with you all!
