January was a very exciting month at Green Hills! We had a number of engaging programs for both elementary and middle school students. Please read below to learn more about January's events as well as upcoming events for both students and parents!
Please remember that I am here to support the students however I can. I am available to meet if a student needs help or just wants to talk! Don't hesitate to reach out if I can support you in any way.

Pass it Along Workshop
The Pass it Along organization, who has worked with our students for many years, visited our 8th graders in January to offer their Discover Your Passion and Purpose workshop. Students met with program facilitators during phys. ed. for three days to help create connection, passion, empathy and purpose. Discover Your Passion and Purpose focuses on self-awareness, gratitude, and service, and encourages students to find ways to make a difference in their community. We are grateful for our partnership with Pass it Along!

Coping Skills for Children and Teens - Parent Presentation
Representatives from the Mental Health Association of Morris and Essex will present a program focusing on coping skills for children and teenagers. They will offer a comprehensive review of anxiety and depression, how these conditions present in children and teens, how parents can help, what kinds of communication strategies can be helpful for parents, and how emotion-focused and problem-focused skills can be helpful for children in dealing with stress. They will also offer numerous resources for parents to keep on-hand.
