Wildcat Wellbeing — New!

We are excited to introduce a new feature to our weekly newsletter — Wildcat Wellbeing — authored by Dr. Katherine Peterson, our school's Student Service Director. Her articles will provide suggestions, insights and helpful practices to help your student work through challenging situations at school and in life.

Dr. Peterson's first article addresses how you and your child can practice mindfulness during this busy holiday season through the power of breathing.
