PLAYGROUND DRAMA? ENDLESS SIBLING BICKERING AT HOME?
Just ask any parent–Conflict happens at home, at school, in social settings. Kids have conflicts with other kids, with their parents, with adults in charge.
Equip your child with a truly valuable life skill: learning to resolve conflicts.
Popular guest expert Dr. Michael Maniacci will return to District 96 Kildeer School at 7 p.m. on Thurs., Feb. 6, for a workshop for parents on Helping Kids Resolve Conflicts. Benefit from a 5-point strategy and an understanding of the real purpose of conflict.
Open to all interested adults. No RSVP/pre-registration. Includes Q&A opportunity. Arrive late/leave early as family schedules require.
Thurs., Feb. 6, Kildeer Elementary School Learning Ctr., 3100 Old McHenry Rd., Long Grove,
7–8:30 p.m. Questions? Contact D96 Community Parent Liaison Lubna Andrabi
DO YOU NEED TO DO THIS?
Is your child in kindergarten? In 5th grade?
If your answer is yes to either question, you’re required to re-prove your residency at your student’s current school no later than Fri., Feb. 14.
Administrative assistants at Willow Grove and KCSD96 elementary schools will accept proof of residency and provide a required form for your signature.
Please note that the requirement to re-prove residency for a current kindergartner and 5th grader applies–even for families who have other students currently attending KCSD96 schools.
