Our First Topic: Student Worry and Anxiety
Wyoming City Schools is hosting the first Parent Partnership Series event at 6 p.m. Wednesday, October 20. The Wyoming City Schools Parent Partnership Series offers opportunities for parents to gather and learn from experts and other Wyoming parents on important topics. These topics are chosen based on what we hear from our students and feedback received during our focus groups, CommUNITY Conversations, and Parent Advisory Committee meetings.
In October, we’re talking about Positive Supports for Student Worry and Anxiety. The evening will begin with a presentation from Dr. Jonathan Dalton from the Center for Anxiety & Behavioral Change. Through his parent presentations, Dr. Dalton provides adults with evidence-based, practical strategies to support children and teens. An example of a previous program is available here. This program is made possible by the generous support of the Wyoming School Foundation. Dr. Dalton will also be meeting with members of the Wyoming City Schools staff earlier in the day.
Parent Partnership Series events are for parents of students in all grade levels. After the opening presentation, there will be an opportunity for parents to gather in small groups based on their child’s age/school level for further discussion and learning. This event is scheduled to take place 6-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, in Wyoming High School’s Pendery Auditorium.
You are not alone. Come partner with us and other Wyoming parents as we work together to grow and celebrate every Wyoming student. Planning is underway for another Wyoming City Schools Parent Partnership event for the second semester.
