Upcoming Parent and Guardian Events

Dear Wellington Families,

We hope that you are having a wonderful week.  I am writing to share a few updates about upcoming family workshops and events with you.

YW Boston Presentation 

Our YW Boston Presentation for families has been rescheduled to March 30th at 7 PM.  Please join us as we, together with our colleagues from Inclusion Boston, share our Equity Action Plan for the upcoming year.  Here is a link to that event. 

McLean’s Parent Presentation

Thanks to everyone who attended the parent/guardian workshop last week.  For those of you who weren’t able to attend, here is a video link to watch it https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4sb4wq2usla3bln/AACWg1Z7Yze1Xf6FyVewoxKTa?dl=0

There will be an additional workshop on April 1st at noon (link is forthcoming). The second talk is entitled:  Supporting Students Through Stress.

The focus of this webinar is to increase our understanding of the challenges facing students today and spotlight strategies parents and caregivers can use to support students in navigating stress while living full and rewarding lives.

Specifically, this webinar will cover interventions to build resilience and address stress reactions in students. We will discuss approaches to improve communication and understanding, promote resilience, and coach youth through big emotions and stressors. Attention to how COVID-19 and current societal stressors play a role will be addressed throughout.
