Science Fair April 26th Come for science, stay for "connect"-ion

Dear SRLA Families

 Exciting Happenings at SRLA on Wednesday, April 26th

Please join us for two very exciting events that day.

Science Fair:

Time: 12:45-1:45 pm, in the gym.

Evening viewing, open to parents (no students): 6:30-7:00 pm

Evening Discussion with School Psychologist, Lauren Rosen

Time: 7:00-8:00 pm

Great news! Students will not have to return Wednesday evening for the science fair. We will, however, still have the open house for those adults who are unable to attend during the day or who may want to come back and view the student work again..

Additionally, we will have Lauren Rosen, a school psychologist from Childhood Connected, join us from 7-8 to discuss with our parents how we can better support our young ones in today's climate. She has 15 years of experience in private schools in NYC and NJ.

Lauren is currently presenting "We can't just switch it off: What our children can learn from traumatic news." 

Sadly, our country continues to suffer from seemingly non-stop tragedies that can have a drastic impact on mental health. Many parents and teachers wonder, "Do I need to talk to my kids about scary news?" The short answer is: yes. However, this is nuanced by developmental level, meeting children where they are and tending to our own feelings around discomfort. Equally as important as talking openly about these issues, are the lessons children can learn to make their own world a safer place.

Please join us for an interesting discussion on Wednesday, April 26th.

 Her website is here if you’d like to learn more about her work:

Please feel free to reach out to either Silinea or myself with any questions you may have.
