At What Cost - Interactive Workshop January 15th, 2019 6pm
Posted 12/21/2018 12:00PM

 

Join Us for this Important Workshop!

As a school district, we strive to prepare our students to be successful adults. The key to this preparation is their social-emotional well-being. Last year, we surveyed our students in grades 5-12 regarding their engagement in school along with questions about how happy, safe, and healthy they feel. (The MiPHY survey results can be found on our website: www.dexterschools.org/boepresentations). Some of the results were what we anticipated and others were fairly alarming. One theme that we believe we must address, as a school district and community, is the mental health of our students. 

Our opening conversation for this very important subject was a community book study on Tuesday, December 4th. On January 15th at 6:00pm, Dr. David Gleason will return to Dexter to lead an interactive workshop that builds on that conversation. 

Dr. Gleason has graciously agreed that we may share his presentations with our community members who may not have been able to attend the event in person. The videos from December 4th have been posted on our website. When you respond to the invitation below, When you respond to the invitation below, a pop-up will provide the link to view those videos online via our password-protected page. If you have any trouble, email info@dexterschools.org.

Please let us know if you can attend and/or if you are interested in participating in committee work that may result from these events: https://goo.gl/forms/3yxNZwaRZ53nNGG83

Raising children to be healthy and happy adults is a community effort. Join us January 15th at 6:00pm at the Mill Creek Cafeteria: 7305 Dexter Ann Arbor Road, Dexter MI 48130.
