Silver Beach News for 10.5.16

Dear Families,
Welcome to October! Here is the link to our October Newsletter.

We are excited to partner with Bellingham Technical College in hosting a class titled, Raising School Age Children Fall 2016.pdf .  The content and presenter, Ann Marie Read, get rave reviews. This class is online with two in-person classroom sessions 10/17 & 12/7 from 7-9pm. Description: Being an effective parent/caregiver can be challenging as well as rewarding. This course will provide a practical approach to improving adult/child relations for parents/caregivers of children ages 6-11 years. Topics cover normal child development including dealing with “tweens”; encouraging cooperation and responsibility; avoiding power struggles and communicating with your child about drugs, alcohol, sexuality and media. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in an online discussion board. Course is $96.53 per family and scholarships available.  YMCA Childcare is also available – $15 total for both in-person sessions & $10 for additional siblings. Childcare pre-registration and payment required. The Childcare registration  is attached and also available in the office.
