  PARENT CHATS 2020-2021

Greenwich Public Schools Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Events promote a safe school climate by fostering social-emotional skills in our students and reinforcing the District’s norms: Be Here, Be Safe, Be Honest, Care for Self and Others, Let Go and Move On.

For the 2020-2021 school year, the district Behavior Support Team is excited to offer parents weekly "Parent Video Chat" sessions. This is an opportunity to connect virtually with other parents in our community and with mental health professionals to learn effective parenting strategies. Parents will be able to share resources and discuss many relevant topics such as establishing positive routines at home, managing challenging behaviors, how to cope with stress and foster resilience, etc.

Using Positive Parenting Skills to help kids thrive in these difficult times.
