Family Engagement in Region 20
Girl CodeRunners Summer Camp
Friends and Families,

It is time for everything "Back to School!" Many wonderful organizations are hosting Back to School fairs. These fairs are occuring all around the city and taking place throughout the week for your convenience.

Also, as school resumes this month, try to attend a free family day at the Doseum or Witte Museum. If you just want to stay home, that works too! Read, “What if We Let Kids Get Bored” by The Wild Kratts.

Additionally, The Military Families Learning Network is offering a Series of Resilience Webinars in August. They provide articles, blogs and podcasts on their website. UTSA has also begun our "Writing back to you" series. This class presents a safe place for military caregivers to connect, express themselves and heal through the power of the written word.

For all the football fans out there, UTSA's football game schedule is up! Bring your family to enjoy an exhilarating evening of San Antonio spirit and family fun.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding college information or about upcoming community events.

If you would like to share your family photos at one of our events, just send them in. All we need is an attached signed Photo Release form.

See you soon :)

Thank you for sharing our newsletter.

What If We Let Kids Get Bored?
Parents often ask us how they can teach their kids about science and the outdoors. What if you did less? What if you let your kids get bored? What if you let kids teach you, rather than the other way around?
Boredom leads kids to flex their creative muscles. It gives them time to think a little bit, to breathe, explore, and figure out their own interests. It may be difficult at first, but if you give kids space to get bored, you’ll be amazed by the creative ways they’ll fill their time.

We often think of resilience as our ability to tough it out through a bad situation alone. 1  But, resilience is much more. It is a skill we consciously work to build and it allows us to adapt to undesired situations, such as workplace stressors or the death of a loved one. 2  Having resilience also means we don’t attempt to face all of life’s’ challenges on our own, rather, we reach out to friends, family, and  professionals for support
