Welcome back! Everyone at QE is so excited to start the new year. Whether you are attending in-person or virtually, we know that this year will have some challenges, but it is up to us to make it great!
Something exciting that happened for me, at the end of last school year, was having my daughter. I've decided to spend a little more time with her, at home. Because of this, I won't see you until October, but trust me, I can't wait to see you!
If you have a concern that needs to be addressed by a school counselor before October 5th, contact the QE office at 717-786-2546.
As you may already know, a lot of organization are offering courses and other resources for free to support families as they go through this strange and for many, difficult, time. Many parents are encountering behaviors from their children that they haven't seen before, and that can be expected, since none of us have ever been through something like this before.
Here are some organizations that are offering some free help, during this time:
Love and Logic - A free (normally $99), parenting course that covers topics including arguments, defiance, bedtime battles, setting kids up for success, and coping with anger and frustration.
Child Mind Institute - Offering links and articles that cover many topics including Coping with Coronavirus Crisis, Autism and the Coronavirus, Managing Anxiety, Discipline and Behavior, and Dealing with Loss.
Looking for a specific type of resource to help you as you and your family work through the challenges of COVID-19? Check out this Resource Map put together by United Way of Lancaster County!
Parents and Guardians,
Below are some changes to the SWEEP (weekend food bag) program that will hopefully make it easier for you to access the support that this program provides to your families.
For the Rest of April (Starting 4/14/2020)
If you are in need of these bags but are unable to make these times work due to transportation or other concerns, please contact me, and I will work with you and the Food Bank to arrange something different.
