Whole Child Focus

Back

10/18/2018

During October and November we have three events focusing on sharing information about mental health with our families and community. Our district’s commitment to the Whole Child is rooted in our strategic plan: “Ensuring that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.” We hope you can join us for one or more of these powerful events.

 

Emotion Coaching
The Heart of Parenting

October 25, November 1 & 6, 2018
Byron Kibler Elementary
6:00-8:00PM
Elementary counselors will lead a series of workshops produced by Drs. John and Julie Gottman known as Emotion Coaching. Learn this 5-step method that gives parents tools to work through a child’s strong emotions and increase children’s understanding of emotions. There is a $12 materials fee for participants. Register for the Fall session by calling Monica Munger at (360)802-7434 or online at https://goo.gl/Ro5nxF.

The series will be repeated in the spring at Black Diamond Elementary on March 12, 19, 26 and April 2 from 4:30-6:00PM.


Suicide Prevention
Mental Health Awareness Night

October 25, 2018
Thunder Mountain Middle School Library
6:00-7:00PM
Attention parents of middle school students! Please join us for our 2nd annual Mental Health Awareness Parent Night for Enumclaw Middle School and Thunder Mountain Middle School families. Counselors will lead a discussion about protective factors, risk factors, warning signs, and the Signs of Suicide (SOS) curriculum. The SOS curriculum will be presented to 8th grade students during the health unit.


Suicide: A Community Conversation
November 14, 2018
Enumclaw High School Commons
6:00-8:00PM
In 2010 the Binion family lost teenager Jordan to suicide, which they attribute to the onset of mental health issues and a lack of information. In 2013 the Binion family started a nonprofit to more effectively reach teachers, students, and families with the information the Binions wish they had known. Deb Binion will join us for Suicide: A Community Conversation to lead the event and share critical information about mental health and suicide.

Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation is teaming up with Enumclaw School District and Tahoma School District to host the Jordan Binion Project.

This event is open to the community. More information is available from RFWF at (360)802-3206. RFWF will provide refreshments. Parking is available at the school entrance and near the tennis courts on Warner Avenue.
