Are your children having trouble starting or completing tasks? Are they having difficulty with organization or following directions? Mrs. Kristin Stapel, Elementary Reading Specialist, and Mr. Ray Wolf, School Psychologist, are offering a brief introductory class for parents on executive functioning. The class is focused on what executive functioning is, why it’s so important, and what parents can do at home to continuously develop it in their kids.
It is a 45-minute class, planned at the beginning of the day (8:30-9:15) on April 9th and May 14th, and at the end of the day, (2:45-3:30) on April 11th and May 14th. Child care is available for both of the afternoon sessions. RSVP for one of the classes at Kristin.Stapel@oostburg.k12.wi.us or by calling the OES Office at 564-
