Race back to school Info Evening

Our parent organizing committee for the 2nd Annual Race Back to School (August 18) is already hard at work reflecting on the inaugural year, setting goals for 2019, and delegating leadership roles to other willing parents. The event is a walk-run-bike-athon for youth, families, and visitors to the Kingdom Trails. 

A major goal for this year is to increase participation among other area schools and youth development organizations.   To further that effort, we will host an informational event in the Barn on March 19 at 5:00 pm for members of such groups to learn more about how they can participate in the Race Back to School and raise money themselves. Please help us out by sharing this event with anyone you know who works with young people and would appreciate a fundraising opportunity.

AGES & STAGES COFFEE HOUSE

nspired by parent suggestions that we continue to offer opportunities for parents to discuss issues of teaching, learning, and parenting, and in particular questions about developmentally appropriate strategies, Michelle has planned the following coffee house event for Tuesday, March 12 at 5:30 pm, open to Riverside families: Ages & Stages: a conversation with parents and professionals about what to do when. 


Special guests will include:

  • Dr. Amanda Van Straten is a neurologist practicing at NVRH. She has a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Florida State University. She completed her medical degree at the University of Oklahoma where she also completed a four-year residency in neurology. She completed additional training in neurophysiology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.  

  • Scott Fournier LCMHC (Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor) has worked with children, teens and families for over 20 years. He works with issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, family issues and spectrum disorders. He uses mindfulness, cognitive behavioral and internal family systems techniques and therapy dogs.

  • Sheryl Cole, psychotherapist, specializes in family health and the importance of structure and boundaries for young people at home.

There will be time to discuss topics like personal technology, building confidence and trust, generational changes in parenting, rules and chores at home, executive functioning, or sports trauma in small group conversation, as well as brief presentations from each guest. We look forward to seeing lots of Riverside parents there!
