Parent and Caregiver Education: Positive Discipline

Sahara Pirie from Sound Discipline will facilitate a workshop on “Parenting with Courage and Connection” on Friday, February 4 from 8:30-10:00am (Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83021426319). All parents and caregivers are invited to attend.

Parents are often challenged by power struggles and whining, arguments over chores, sibling fights, bedtime problems, clashes over homework and screen time, and other issues. This workshop provides an introduction to skills and tools that get to the core of conflict and bring more peace and joy to your home.

Learn how to:

• Use basic brain science (adult and child) to improve behavior at home
• Build connections to share your values and culture
• Discipline with kindness and firmness.

Parents will leave this workshop with several new simple, respectful parenting tools to use right away!

Reusable Utensil Program Starting This Week!

Starting Thursday January 27, we are switching to reusable utensils in the cafeteria, through a grant from Department of Ecology and City of Bellevue!

We estimate this will save more than 47,000 disposable plastic utensils from the landfill in one school year.

If you see any of these new school utensils at home please send them back to school so they can stay in the cycle. Click through to the PTSA web site for all the details!
