Parent Association Meeting Information

The first Parent Association meeting of the school year is scheduled for Monday November 5, 2018 (6pm)

Jennifer McCaslin, Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, NCC, LPC, is coming to speak about anxiety in children. There are many ways that children suffer from anxiety and Jennifer will name some common identifiers as well as present ways to help children cope with their anxiety.  “Having Generalized Anxiety Disorder can make it hard for kids to focus in school. Because with GAD, there is almost always a worry on a kid’s mind. GAD makes it hard for kids to relax and have fun, eat well, or fall asleep at night. They may miss many days of school because worry makes them feel sick, afraid, or tired.”  Kids Health.org

Please plan to join us for a discussion on this very important topic and an opportunity to ask questions. Also, there will be a few PUCS announcements. Dinner and childcare will be provided. Please RSVP for childcare to office@pucs.org.
