PARENTING WORKSHOP - “Impulsivity, Inattention, Hyperactivity & Self Control” Friday, April 22, 8:30, Parent Center. Impulsivity in young children is fairly common. But when is it a sign of a problem? When is it developmentally appropriate? This workshop is designed to help parents understand the signs of a potential problem and learn about tools to help children learn self control. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.orgPresented by Farnaz Kerendi Simantob, Ph.D.
MCDONALD'S NIGHT IS HERE! - Please join us this Wednesday, April 20th at the McDonald’s on Ventura Blvd. at Haskell anytime between 4:30 and 7:30. Kids love to eat with their teachers and Mr. Hansen!!
BRING A BOOK! SWAP A BOOK! - There will be a Book Swap during the week of April 18 - 22. Children are encouraged to bring books from home that they no longer read to “swap” with other students as a means of reusing and recycling our books. This is a great way to help the environment and share some of your favorite books with students at Lanai. The Book Swap box will be located near the school entrance. Children will be able to “give” and “get” books at this location all week. If you have any questions, please contact Julie Weinstein at email@example.com.

Prizes will be awarded at morning assembly on Monday, April 25th.
