By Kari Jansen, Lower School Student Support Coordinator
Lower School parents may recall "The Power of Showing Up" being referenced in August during our Parent Night presentations as we shared the four S's for showing up with our kids: safe, seen, soothed, and secure. We are pleased to announce an in-depth discussion of this book that will take place over three sessions during March, April, and May.
Join us for one or all sessions as we explore the ways we can be present for our children. During a year that has left many feeling isolated, we invite you to find community and connection among fellow LS parents as we navigate the art of imperfect, yet present, parenting.
The book club will take place over Zoom with the following schedule: Chapters 1-3: Wednesday, March 10 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Chapters 4-5: Wednesday, April 7 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Chapter 6 & Conclusion: Wednesday, May 5 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
We are planning a virtual retirement celebration for 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 14 for our seven faculty members who are retiring at the end of this school year. Watch the reception live at youtube.com/c/USNPDSOfficial.
