Wellness Corner - Student and Parent Wellness Activity:
The new school year is here and there is no better time to prioritize family wellness! We are excited to share with you resources related to child, parent, and family self-care. Self-care is about HOW you take care of yourself, not IF you do. It is really anything that we deliberately do (or refrain from doing) with our own well-being in mind.
Take some time to create a self-care plan for you, your child, and your family!

Vote to Make your voice heard:
One of the most important elections of our generations is coming up this November. Make sure that you’re not left out and your voice is heard! Who we elect as the next President will matter greatly in the area of education, women’s rights, immigration, prison reform, crime, healthcare access and so many other issues that impact our communities.
To help support you during this election year, we are excited to launch our Uncommon votes page! Please use this page to find info on voting deadlines and links to look up your registration status, register to vote, and request your absentee/vote-by-mail ballots. Use this site to make a voting plan to ensure that your voice is heard!
