Family Academy_ Anxiety, Trauma, and a Pandemic - Oh My! Promo

The past year has been challenging! Social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and other mental health concerns have come into our children’s lives and we’re finding they need us now more than ever.

Bacon Street is partnering with us to look at anxiety from a trauma informed perspective and provide families tips and tricks as well as validation and empathy.

Purpose

The Family Academy is a division-wide initiative designed to promote engagement by offering families information and resources that support student development and achievement. This initiative seeks to provide strategies that help families become stronger advocates in their child’s education and build successful partnerships with schools.

Family Academies offer families an opportunity to rotate through three 35-minute workshops centered on a specific topic.

The importance of partnership between home and school is critical as we navigate student learning during COVID-19. During remote learning, families have become an even greater primary resource for their child’s educational experience and are expected to utilize new strategies to support students. We recognize the challenges of our circumstances and hope these resources will be useful.
