Hello Fairview Park Families!

Last week I touched on two articles that discussed some mental health topics. I wanted to remind everyone of the FACE Resource page of the web site. I have tons of resources for families! I wanted to showcase the ones below this week as a follow up to last week's newsletter.

Lastly, the end of second quarter is Friday, January 24th.  How is your child doing now that we are halfway through this school year?  Do you still have some questions about the platform and want to know all the ins and outs? Sign up for an individual appointment with one of our teachers below.  Bring your child's laptop and your child if you want.
