We hope your summer is off to a great start! Recently, the facilitators met to start planning for next year and we want to share the dates and topics with you. We wanted to provide the dates now in case you’d like to plug them into your calendars. Most are the first Tuesday of the month, but in the spring we moved 2 dates to the third Tuesday to accommodate spring break and Derby. We are providing the topics so that you can help us find resources to share that go along with the topics. For instance, maybe you know a great speaker who might be willing to present on the topic? Or, you might have a book or article to pass along? We would really value your input so we can make our group even better and more relevant than ever before.
We also realize that the room can be difficult to find for new people so we’d love a volunteer each month to act as a greeter and direct people to the room. And, snacks are always fun, so we plan to offer an opportunity to sign up to bring a simple snack to share.
Okay, here goes:
August 1: Back to school
September 5: Dealing with transitions
October 3: How to establish a community
November 7: Food and eating issues
December 5: Creating meaningful traditions
January 2: Self care & respite tips
February 6: Think.move.learn
March 6: Building healthy connections
April 17: Honoring your child’s past
May 15: Balancing structure and nurture
Please reply if you have a resource for one or more of these, would like to be a greeter, or would like to bring a snack to share.
