We are hosting a crucial Parent Meeting on Thursday February 16.
Psalm 62:5-6 says, “Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.” As the pressures of life crowd in, God’s truth gives us lasting strength and HOPE. At “Matters of the Mind: Our Proactive Approach to Student Health and Well-Being” our breakout sessions will provide guidance, wisdom and HOPE as we all seek to raise our children. Listed below are our speakers and their sessions. To ensure we have enough seats for all attendees, please Sign-Up for BOTH Breakouts (one at 7:00pm and on at 7:45pm)!
We believe this time will be relevant and helpful to parents of all ages. Please save the date and make a priority of attending. Breakout sessions are listed below. Please sign up for TWO breakout sessions. Space is limited.
