One key area that is helpful is as comfort captains. Have them make food, or wrangle supplies. You can also ask them to help you teach lessons that are relevent to their skills

Could you explain more about what you mean by make food? Our school district has a strict snack/nutrition policy

I don’t🤷‍♂️

About to enter my third trimester and might be getting vaccinated today. Am very nervous and going back and forth about it. If I don’t go it’s very likely I won’t have another chance until after the baby. I have antibodies from about a year ago but am unsure how long those will last. Any pregnant moms gotten the vaccine? I’m truly stuck and scared the make the wrong decision long term for my baby.

Help! I have a parent who is over-exaggerating and possibly putting words in her child’s mouth regarding issues at school. Today she contacted me regarding her child being “assaulted” at school. We’ve explained to her that we need the child to report these incidents to a teacher at school as soon as possible after it happens, but never does. Makes me wonder if she’s making things sound worse or if the child is telling stories to get her attention.

My school has used The Boomerang Project in the past to help students transition from middle to high school. By the time I found out the 2 teachers who lead the program were leaving our school it was too late to receive the training last spring. I looked today to see when the next training is happening so I could talk to my principal about signing up, however every training is sold out! Does anyone know of a program that is comparable to look into? Google search has not helped.
