On Thursday, November 8 at 7pm, the Shady Grove YMCA will be hosting “Benefits of Mindfulness: How Teens & Families Can Change Their Relationship with Stress.” Teenagers face a host of pressures as they strive for independence and navigate an increasingly complex world. Similarly parents face anxiety as they try to maintain a positive relationship and hold boundaries with their teen while still allowing the teen room to grow and experience life. These dynamics can raise the stress levels within a family. Mindfulness can help! Join us as we learn about and experience mindful practices from two local experts, Clair Norman and Sherry Klauer, who will lead this community discussion on mindfulness in the context of family.
Clair is Director of Mindfulness Education with the Cameron K. Gallagher (CKG) Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness, erasing stigmas associated with teenage anxiety and depression and to providing tools that help including mindfulness education and skill building. Sherry left the corporate world and made a career shift to mind/body well-being after her daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2009. She coordinates all mindfulness and spiritual exploration programming at Chrysalis Institute.
If you are applying to Virginia Tech please read the following. We have just gotten clarification that their system is not cooperating with the academic self-reporting section on Coalition. So, they are asking that all students also complete a SRAR (Self-reported Academic Record) on their website. The direct link to the SRAR is https://srar.selfreportedtranscript.com/Login.aspx?pt_ceeb=6D54BC1C9013D0FC (please note that an official transcript will not be accepted in place of the SRAR, the SRAR is mandatory or you application is considered incomplete). There is an instructional Youtube video on how to complete the SRAR if you need more information at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhJ5dg_AlSo If you have questions stop in and see your school counseling in the Wildcat Corner during lunch.

The specific essay prompt this year is: “What are essential qualities of a citizen in your community in 21st century America?”
Students can find contest details, including rules and instructions on how to submit an essay on the website.
We look forward to hearing from your students about what citizenship looks like in their communities!
