Thank you to all the Harbor View Dads who were able to attend our chili cookoff event this week. It was a huge success on many levels. We received a funding request from Dr. Schmidt for a Life Skills Enrichment Program for our students in partnership with HVPFO. During the chili cookoff we subsequently raised over $4000 to fund this amazing program and we had a lot of fun too. Congratulations to Mr. Tim Wilson and Mr. Jason Bartusick for producing the winning chilis.
The Life Skills Program will educate our students on mental and social life skills they use outside of the classroom such as coping with anxiety or stress, setting and achieving goals, developing empathy and compassion, resolving conflicts, and making responsible decisions. The Program will also interface with parents to support the implementation of these skills.
Join us next month for additional details. Our schedule is posted in the Events menu at www.harborviewdads.com.
