For Parents...
For Staff...
  •  Calm... Free Mindful Meditation site for Teachers!  AMAZING!  Give it try!
  • What do Kids Really Need to be Happy and Successful?  Empathy  Dr. Michele Borba writes in her new book Unselfie, "While we may be producing a smart, self-assured generation of young people, today's kids are also the most self-centered, saddest and stressed on record." What can teachers do about it?  
  • Today's Students Might be Emotionally Unprepared  Regardless of all the honors classes and A.P. courses they took in high school, or the science, technology and engineering classes they cram into their college curriculum, students today will not be fully prepared to compete in an increasingly global business environment.  The problem - and the solution - is not intellectual. It's emotional.
