Let’s Chat Live Parenting Series!


Parents, please mark your calendars for our “Let’s Chat ‘Live’” series this semester.  The theme is The Family System -- Knowing How to Navigate Yours!  As always, we meet in the mornings (8:00-9:15) in The Space and a light breakfast and coffee is provided.


March 1st:  Ryan Casada and Olivia Litwiller (Licensed Mental Health Counselors at Journey’s Counseling in Maitland) plan to help us understand each member of the system individually.  Specifically, they will use the Enneagram personality test and the variety of ways we blend together as families.  Where are you running into snags and how can you better understand how we affect each other?

April 5th:  This month we hope to shed light on “The Hidden Child.”  This is the child who is silent and nearly invisible. It’s tempting as parents to let that sleeping dog simply lie!  And yet it’s essentially important that we understand what has caused her to disappear and how to best draw her out.  

*While these dates will not change, the speakers and topics may possibly exchange dates.

Important Bright Futures Update for Seniors:

The Florida Department of Education is now requiring that private school students send their SAT or ACT scores to one of the Florida public colleges or universities. This is the only way Bright Futures will have access to the scores. This means if you have only applied to a private school or out of state school you must also send your score(s) to a Florida public school, even if you don’t intend to apply.

Please contact Ms. Mishkin if you have questions or need further clarification. LMishkin@ocsrams.org
