Mindful Parenting--Tuesday, September 2
Join us for a PTSA & Lynbrook Excellence sponsored speaker event. Roni Habib will be addressing parents on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, in the Lynbrook Auditorium.
We all want our children to be happy, more peaceful, more attuned to others’ needs, and to be able to regulate during stressful times. The best way for them to learn these skills is through watching their role models practice it. Yet, what does it mean to be mindful? And what does it mean to parent mindfully? How can we become more present with and for our children when life can be so incredibly busy? How can we begin to emotion coach our children and help them thrive through adversity? In our time together, we’ll explore these questions and understand the why and how of mindful parenting. This session will be active, fun, and you’ll learn a ton!
Roni Habib, is an expert in helping educators and parents become more mindful and connected to the children in their care. He leads workshops and speaks in schools nationally and abroad and is the founder of EQ Schools. At the beginning of his career, Roni struggled with the high stresses and demands of teaching and began to lose touch with why he wanted to be a teacher in the first place. It was so painful that he finally discovered the power of integrating Mindfulness, Emotional Intelligence, and Positive Psychology in his classroom, in parenting his children, and in his own life. He felt called to share this new approach with the world. Roni has since inspired hundreds of educators and parents through his workshops and conferences. Most importantly, he has a huge heart and loves helping people
One more reminder about bringing lunches to campus
It is a kind thing to bring lunch to your student, but we are unable to facilitate this practice. We cannot safely store food, and we are unable to accommodate parents who come to the office to drop off food for students. Students need to bring their lunches with them in the morning and store their food securely in their lockers.
The main parking lot has been crowded with parents bringing food to students. When the loading area, fire lanes, and the main parking lot aisles are jammed with cars during lunch, it creates an unsafe environment for everyone. It is best for students to bring their lunches to school on their own in the morning.
To maintain a safe school, it is important that staff can identify all adults on campus. That is why we have a check-in and check-out process for visitors. In the name of safety, we ask that parents refrain from roaming campus to deliver lunches.
If a student does not bring a lunch to school, the school does offer brunch and lunch for students. Our food service workers are adding another register to reduce wait time, and they are adding a side salad and additional fruit options with the main lunch. Parents can add money to their student's account through the Infinite Campus portal, or students can bring cash to pay for meals.
Thank you for your assistance with this important safety concern.
I look forward to greeting parents at these special September events!
