    Parent Education Meeting
    My Stress is Giving Me Anxiety
    November 29th

    Please join us for this informative meeting "My Stress is Giving Me Anxiety" to learn how to help your child cope with stress and anxiety. We all experience anxiety from time to time. As parents and educators, our goal is not to get rid of anxiety. Instead, we need to give our students tools to help them manage their stress and anxiety so that it does not become all-consuming. We want our students to have confidence and resilience so they can face new challenges and experiences.

    Date: November 29th
    Times: 9-10 a.m. & 6-7 p.m.
    Location: PISD Admin Bldg room 108

    The human brain cannot create faces. Therefore, when you dream, if you see someone you do not know, you have seen their face before - even if it was for a split second at the store.
