Oct 19, 2015: Celebrate Calm
Monday, 19 October 2015 15:10

For this month's PTA updates please click here and review the slides. Contact the Officers if you have any questions.

Today's meeting will be entirely devoted to this special presentation:

Celebrate Calm Founder Kirk Martin, and his son, Casey, will provide parents and teachers with a dozen strategies that will eliminate defiance, disrespect, yelling, bullying, sibling fights and more that characterize our homes and classrooms. Kirk provides concrete, practical strategies that work with kids ages 2-22 in everyday situations to:

  • Get your kids to listen the first time.
  • Stop defiance, disrespect, and yelling.
  • Stop whining, tantrums and sibling fights.
  • Get kids off video games/screens without a fight.
  • Create stress-free mornings, homework time and bedtime.

Visit for a sneak peak of what you will experience. Arrive early for the special Q&A with Kirk (that begins 10 minutes prior to the workshop beginning).

The presentation will be repeated tomorrow, Tuesday, October 20 FROM 10:00 AM - 12 NOON.
