In the 2022-23 year, our PTA was awarded the National PTA's Healthy Minds grant. We had 3 presentations to our families:
- Healthy Minds 101 - as part of our Family Fitness Fun Day
- Social Emotional Learning - given by our school counselors Nancy Stavrakakis and Teri Armstrong - after our 2nd General PTA Membership Meeting
- Building Resiliency - given by Dr. Rangel, Director of WCPSS Family Academy
The first two presentations were part of our Health & Wellness Month.
