TRI-CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY TO HOST “PARENTING TOOL BOX” ON OCTOBER 8TH
The Tri-City Public Library will host a “Parenting Tool Box on the evening of Tuesday, October 8th at the Library. The event, in cooperation with the Williamsville Public Library, will focus on providing tools and suggestions for parents to use when dealing with bullying issues with their children. October is Anti-Bullying Month and this is one of many area events planned to provide information and dialogue about this important issue.
Two sessions will be held. The first session is for parents of children in pre-K through 5th grade and will be held from 6 – 7 pm. The second session is for parents of junior high and high school students and will be held from 7 – 8 pm.
Short presentations will be given by Bryon Honea, Buffalo-Mechanicsburg Police Chief, from the law enforcement perspective; Kara Cummins, Elementary Principal at Tri-City Schools, from the education perspective; Larry Hanson, pastor of Grace Community Church, from the faith perspective; Stacy Kolaz, a counselor at Tri-City Schools will give her perspective as a counselor; and JoAnna Rentschler will provide a legal perspective. Following the short presentations, each session will be open for discussion.
Chief Honea will also be available for fingerprinting of children that evening.
Helping children to be successful is a community-wide effort. Recognizing, preventing and helping children victimized by bullying is an important step to helping children achieve their potential.
