Discussion with the Dean:
Special Evening Edition!
 
Tuesday, April 30th
6:00 – 7:30 pm
MVWS Social Hall
This evening is for every parent and caregiver.
Please join me and a special guest as we discuss relationships with your children and what lies underneath their behaviors.
We will discuss:
Our children are like trees – with roots, trunks, branches, leaves, and flowers.  When you see behaviors in your children, you are looking at the leaves and flowers.  But if we want to see change in behaviors, we can’t just focus on the leaves and flowers – we need to feed the roots!
My special guest, Marlene Martin, is a Developmental Consultant and Parent Coach who has been working for 15 years to provide families with the knowledge and understanding needed to create individualized, comprehensive programs that support all children and adults to thrive.  She brings families peace of mind through a deeper understanding of their child’s complete profile.
This evening is free and adult-only.  Bring your favorite beverage, paper and a pen.
RSVPs are helpful!
Warmly,
Lisa

Dear Parents of the Manzanita Class,

Please join me and the Shady Trees parents for a combined parent meeting on:
• Thursday evening, April 4, 2019,
• from 6:30 – 8:00 PM,
• in our current middle school classroom,
to look ahead, with more detail, to the combined middle school class, Grades 6, 7 & 8, for the upcoming school year 2019/2020.
I welcome you all to participate in this meeting, regardless of your plans for next year, especially because we will be talking about child development of the turning-12s through age 14.  We will, also, be looking at the curriculum, how the main lesson blocks and skills track classes will be structured, and how we are including common core skills practice in preparation for high school. Please, RSVP to me with any questions and to confirm your attendance.  Please sign up with Alice, as far ahead as possible, if you are interested in having childcare for that night.
I look forward to spending the evening with you,
Ania Kubik
