Congratulations to Catherine and Weaver on a nice run in the state tournament. The team lost to Cromwell in the semis, but won the game pictured here at Nonnewaug in overtime. Catherine missed a bunch of games midseason because of a back injury, but once she came back was one of the driving forces on the team’s tournament run.
On Saturday, January 26, from 9:30-Noon, Mitch Beck Professor & Chair of the Dept. of Special Education will offer a training for all of our volunteers.
The training will deal with how to address kids’ behavioral issues. The major focus will be on understanding power struggles and how we get caught in them. We will also discuss how to change these conflict cycles into coping cycles.
The training will be held at the Purple House, 26 Clark St.
Please make an effort to join us, especially if you are involved in the after school program.
