• Wellness Workshops and Training Sessions

    Sessions for the 2022-23 school year will be announced soon.

    Stress Management and Wellness Skills

    Manage stress by learning to read your body’s reactions in order to bring your mind, body, and spirit into greater balance. The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) is used in our schools and encourages the strengthening of both individual and community resiliency through the promotion of living fully with compassion in the present moment while managing the activities of daily living. Sessions are open to all families, parents, caretakers and students.

    Circle Connections

    Learn more about one of the tools of Restorative Practices used in our schools, the Circle Process. The Circle is an organized group discussion that allows everyone to share openly when they feel comfortable. This often leads to improved behavior, increased accountability, and strengthening relationships. The Circle is a facilitated dialogue process that is invitational, meaning that no one is required to participate.

    Contact Colleen Fitzpatrick at cfitzpatrick@wcpss.net with questions.

    The Circle (El Círculo) es una discusión grupal guiada por un facilitador y que es parte del conjunto de herramientas de prácticas restaurativas, que permite a todos compartir abiertamente cuando se sienten cómodos. Este proceso a menudo conduce a un mejor comportamiento, un mayor compromiso propio y un fortalecimiento de las relaciones interpersonales.

    Próximamente, se ofrecerán múltiples sesiones informativas para que los padres aprendan más sobre este proceso, incluidas las sesiones que se ofrecen en español.
