Parenting Hour - Zoom
Parenting is hard. Teaching as a parent can be harder. Are you worried about your child emotionally or academically? Could you use some advice on how to organize and continue to motivate your child as a student? Would you like to just connect with other parents and staff to talk and give and receive support? Each Wednesday Mental Health Specialists will be available to teach, support and answer your questions.
Join us for a weekly Zoom meeting on
Wednesdays May 20, May 27, and June 3 at 4:00pm.
Put us on your calendar and join us here:

Social & Emotional Learning Team
Andi West and Keith Orchard joined Coeur d'Alene Public Schools in 2019 to oversee mental wellness support work in our schools. Andi is our new Mental Health Coordinator, and Keith is our Mental Health Specialist. Their positions were made possible thanks to increased funding from our two-year operating levy approved by voters in March 2019.
Andi and Keith are meeting with teachers and other staff in our schools to discuss our "whole student" approach to nurture and grow the cognitive, emotional, relational and physical being of each student. Andi also is focused on community engagement and collaboration with partner agencies and organizations. Strengthening these community connections will ensure we are able to provide wrap-around services for students who need that level of care.
