In this parenting talk, co-presented by the Committee to Support Students with Special Needs and the Social and Emotional Experience Committee, our guest speaker will share her expertise on this topic: What is mindfulness training and how can it help my child?
By learning and practicing mindfulness, our children can calm down, reduce impulsiveness, identify their feelings, improve attention, improve body awareness and generally feel better.
Presenter Jane Weedon, P.T.M.S., BFA, MFA, will explain and demonstrate how her unique approach to mindfulness training can help your child and you be healthier and happier.
THURS, MARCH 22, 7 pm
at Shepherd’s Hall behind Holy Name Church, 245 Prospect Park West
Coming up on March 22nd is our biggest adults only fundraiser of the year: Raffle Mania! Raffle Mania is back for its 3rd consecutive year and bigger than ever. We’ll have more games, more raffles and our biggest fundraising goal yet: $50,000! Bring your friends and family, and help us meet that goal. Dinner and open bar are included.
Did you know you can volunteer in the lunchroom?
Volunteers help keep the lunch room organized and fun for our children as they have down time from their studies. The success of your child’s education can be found in the many aspects of their school day. This includes their lunch time. In order for our children to enjoy every part of their day at PS 154, we need dedicated people EACH DAY to help in the lunchroom. This is also a great opportunity to get to know the wonderful children and families in our school.
In order to volunteer, please read and sign the volunteer agreement. You are required to sign and return the Expectations for Volunteers form to Debby Wattenbarger before serving as a lunchroom volunteer. Hope to see you soon!
