Town Hall on Stress & Anxiety During Crisis

Town Hall on Stress & Anxiety During Crisis

The pandemic has brought disruption and uncertainty in our lives and the loss of “normal” has brought up a multitude of social and emotional issues for families. In this challenging time, what has PPS done that you have found useful and how else can we best support families? What resources are available for coping with stress and isolation? How can we best cultivate a resilient mindset for both our children and ourselves? What strategies have families found to be useful in this situation?

These questions will be explored in a discussion with Superintendent Xavier Botana and a panel of experts and parents in a Virtual Town Hall style meeting via Zoom. The panelists are: Dr. Chris Reiger; Chris Salamone; Jenna Goldstein-Walsh, Melissa McStay; Tim Atkinson; Nicole Michna-Bradeen; Nguinamau Celestino; Jes Hathaway; Erica King; Chris Ndaye; and Lucia Rico.
