ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS
After school Social Skills program
Hello Parents,

I just wanted to let you know that we are in the final stages of finalizing our after school social skills group. If you are still interested in applying for child(ren), they will have to go through a screening interview with the company. In addition, please share your insurance company with them to see if your insurance will cover the costs. The contact person is Nikki Stewart and her email address is nikki@verbalbeginnings.com

If you can cc me also (Mona Gomaa, mgomaa@mycsp.org) so I can keep track of how many students are willing to participate that would be great. Thanks!

HELP KIDS STRESS LESS
As children's schedules fill up with activities and their backpacks fill up with homework, it is normal to worry about the increasing stress in their lives. Too much stress can hurt kids, contributing to behavioral changes and many physical and emotional problems. While stress cannot be eliminated completely from their lives, parents can play a role in helping students understand where stress comes from and how to handle it.

STICK TO ROUTINES

One of the biggest stressors across the board for all children is an unstable or unpredictable environment at school and at home. Keep a routine as much as possible. And when schedules have to change, give kids an early heads up that schedules are changing.

SET LIMITS

Having a regular schedule is important, but it is just as important not to overschedule activities. There is no hard-and-fast way to know if you are overscheduled, but when your kids are so scheduled they cannot fit in homework or have unstructured downtime to do a hobby or read a book, that is a problem.

EAT FOR SUCCESS

Healthy eating is a big part of managing stress. Kids who are not eating right are not going to learn very well. This causes more stress because they fall behind in school. This is a chain reaction contributing to areas that are also stressful.

When kids struggle with stress, there are many steps parents can take to help them cope better. Families can find support at school, too. Teachers and counselors can be a great asset to parents as they try to help a stressed child find healthy ways to manage their feelings.
