Winter Concert Update- Including Poetry Students

Due to the large numbers of students enrolled in Music and Choir this year, along with the desire to have receptions post-performance, The Fine Arts Department, in conjunction with NPX administration, have decided to change the date of the High School and Honors Choir Winter Concert to Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at Calvary North Church Call time for ALL students is 5:00pm at the church.  This concert will be for 9th and 10th grade Choir, as well as the Middle School & Honors Choirs. The team felt splitting the concerts was in the best interest of students, their families, and the teachers tasked to supervise.

What is stress? What does it look like during different developmental stages?
This informational presentation will provide information on what is “typical” for students, and how stress can affect a students daily life. We will look at how environmental factors can play a part, as well explore constructive coping skills that parents can teach their students in order to build a resilient child. The goal is to increase knowledge about stress and coping, provide insight into symptoms, and build skills to support our scholars in managing their feelings.
