Salish FYSPRT Newsletter
Back to School
Back-to-School time can be simultaneously exciting and worrying. Before your child goes back to school, make sure that they feel comfortable in their school and know what is expected of them. Talk to them about their concerns, and if possible, meet with their teacher(s) before school is back in session. Going to a new school can be particularly daunting for children, so make sure they attend orientation in order to make their new school less intimidating. If you worry about your child’s school experience, PACER Center (www.pacer.org) has many resources available for parents relating to all aspects of schooling. The August Salish FYSPRT meeting, taking place in the Port Orchard Library, Jefferson Public Health, and First Steps Family Center, will be addressing back-to-school concerns, including IEPs, drug use, and transitions. Join in our discussion with other families and child care specialists.
Several Back-to-School events, with free school supplies, information, games, and services, will be taking place in August. Here are a few that Salish FYSPRT will be attending and hope you will join us. The Bremerton School District Back to School Fair will take place on August 13th from 5-7 at Mountain View Middle School.
