‘Using a Positive Approach to Address Challenging Behaviors’ Class
By Project ACT Staff (Special education, Speech, Early Childhood Education, and/or Counseling)
Time: 6:15 – 9:15 Date: June 4th Fee: $30 per person
This interactive training will define the term, “behavior” and discuss the four main motivations for behaviors. This training will engage participants to discover how to redirect and shape behavior while encouraging positive social and emotional skill-building in children. Global classroom strategies will be reviewed to encourage positive behavior in all children. Participants will leave this training with several strategies they can choose to implement immediately in their educational setting. This is strong, fundamental knowledge for all parents. All are welcome to attend. R.S.V.P. to Dawn Wade at email@example.com or 410-757-2271 by Tuesday, May 28th.
Summer is almost here & that means Bibles on the Beach is back…. We’d love to have you join us for the summer study of Let. It. Go. by Karen Ehman. Here is a blurb about the book: Women are wired to control. We make sure the house is clean, the meals are prepared, the beds are made, the children are dressed, and everyone gets to where they’re going on time. But sometimes our strength of being conscientious can morph into the weakness of being a slight—or all out—control freak! This humorous, yet spiritually practical book will help you learn how to control what you should, trust God with what you can’t, and more importantly, decide which one is which!
Why: If the above description sounds like something you could benefit from, then we’d love to have you join us this summer. J
Even if you are not a control freak, we could all benefit from learning to fully rely on God in our lives.
When: In 3 short weeks, we will have our first study session. We will be meeting on 6 Tuesdays throughout the summer: Tuesday, 6/4, 6/18, 7/9 (a 3 week break), 7/23, 8/6, 8/20. This study starts at 7. It will go to 8 or so (depending on when it gets dark).
Where: Gray deck at the Main Beach in the Cape ~ Inquire when you RSVP about Cape Parking Passes
Rain location: CSCUMC library – come here if we aren’t at the beach if weather is questionable (855 Chestnut Tree Drive)
How to Join Us: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us – this will ensure we have the right amount of materials. Invite friends! Walk-ins welcome. There two ways to get your book. You can order it on your own from Proverbs 31: http://www.p31bookstore.com/products/let-it-go, but order soon! (the book on Amazon appears to be the study guide only). RSVP (via email) with a book order by 5/26 & you will be able to pick up your book by Sunday, 6/2. Put $16 in the offering plate to cover the cost of the book & shipping. We hope you can join us this summer as we learn to Let. It. Go.
