La Center School District Needs Volunteers

La Center Elementary is slowly bringing students back for in-person instruction. As students slowly make their return in order to abide by COVID-19 restrictions new protocols will be implemented. In order to effectively help students transition it will take a lot of extra bodies to help with temperature checks, and to man hallway transitions. If you are interested in helping be a part of this transition consider filling out a volunteer application or if you have more questions contact Melissa Lile ( @ 263-2134

Back to School: Helping Kids Overcome School Anxiety and Build Resiliency - Concrete Resource Coalition

Wednesday, Nov. 11th, 12:30-2:30pm

This is an online event.

Living in a world that’s increasingly unpredictable, today’s kids, especially alternative learners, are more anxious than ever before. Dr. Sharon Saline, veteran psychologist and author of What your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids for Success in School and Life, and The ADHD Solution Card Deck will discuss how anxiety works and what professionals and parents can do to help kids reduce their worries. Dr. Saline will also discuss how to help kids change their relationship to worry and avoid the pitfalls of negative thinking. Learn techniques for separating the person from the anxiety, talking to the worry itself, and creating effective responses to ‘what ifs’. Dr. Saline offers tools for teaching all types of learners how to realistically evaluate situations, tolerate uncertainty, and calm down.
