Snowman Garden in Sierra Park
If we ever get a decent snow this winter, let's create a collection of snow creatures in Sierra Park. Pick your own day and time and enjoy the fresh air. And don't forget to check out all of the other creations in the park- sabertooth tiger, anyone?
Additional Childhood Resiliency Training
Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers in the Ralston Valley and Arvada West areas,
As a follow-up from our December sessions with Joy Wishtun, LPC, we will dig deeper around supporting resiliency in our kids. Joy will facilitate four separate sessions over Zoom, where she will focus on providing specific strategies around strengthening your child's resilience:
Early Childhood - February 10th at 5:00 pm
Elementary Age - February 10th at 6:00 pm
Young Adolescents - February 17th at 6:00 pm
Older Adolescents - February 17th at 7:00 pm
Each session will provide parents and caregivers an overview of skills to utilize with children in that developmental level, to build healthier, more rewarding relationships, and help your child’s resilience during challenging times and situations. These presentations will be interactive, so come ready to participate and play! Even if you didn't join us in December, please feel free to participate.
RSVP by February 7th to participate in a 45-minute session. You may attend more than one session, if you have children in multiple age categories. Click on the link below to register:
