Mindful Parenting Class - Tuesday, January 12, 8:20, Parent Center.  Start the new year with some new parenting skills!!  This free one hour class will provide parents with an introduction to the practice of Mindful Parenting. More often than not, we are on "automatic pilot," distracted by anxiety and preoccupied with the stressors in our lives. Mindfulness Parenting emphasizes acceptance, compassion, and living in the present moment as practices that help restore and strengthen the wellbeing of parents and their children, regardless of external conditions. No prior experience with mindfulness is required. Please RSVP to Presented by the Pepperdine Community Counseling Center, Encino and the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology.  

Emergency Phone Numbers - If you did not receive a call on Tuesday to alert you to the school closing, please stop by the office and let us know we can update our system.  Thanks!
