New Student Welcome Lunch

I will be doing another round of new student welcome lunches this month. I invite the many new students that we receive year round to lunch in my office every other month. This is a time for me to get to know them and to help them form connections with other new Sunny Hills students.

Upcoming Events: Plugged-in Parents: Keeping kids safe, happy & healthy in the digital age by COMMON SENSE MEDIA & Jocelyn Skillman LMHC, MHP, CMHS

Even the most in-tune parents could use some extra tips for keeping up with the fast-changing media landscape. Local Issaquah mental health therapist specializing in technology fixation, and youth screen time use, Jocelyn Skillman, partners with nationally acclaimed Common Sense Media to deliver a comprehensive presentation addressing the biggest concerns parents of elementary and middle schoolers have: managing screen time, getting a cellphone, cyberbullying, social media, apps, and more.

For PARENTS of grades K-8.
