Happy Thanksgiving from APOST!

Educator Workshop
Dance offers children a way to explore their environment, engage with peers, and express their unique selves. During this workshop on December 14th, offered by the Cultural Trust, Promoting Self-Awareness through Dance teaches dance strategies that will foster all of these experiences by promoting children’s self-awareness. You will learn ways to bring these ideas into your center to create a classroom of students with strong self-control and body-awareness!

Self-compassion and self-care are necessary components of our overall well-being, and important skills to nurture in order to create more compassionate out-of-school time cultures. In Cultivating Seeds of Self-Compassion on December 13th, we’ll discuss social emotional learning, examine the science of self-compassion, engage in mindfulness practices, and discuss the importance of a supportive community for ourselves and others. Join APOST and our guest presenter, Tina Raspanti, for this intriguing and appropriate topic heading into the holiday season!
