Navigating the Pressures
In our ongoing commitment to building relationships that support students, District 230 will hold its next S4 Summit entitled Be Empowered: Navigating the Pressures Facing Teens on November 14 at 7 p.m. at Sandburg High School. Our goal is to encourage as many parents, employers, community members, staff and anyone who cares about teens to attend this inspiring and informational event.
Nationally-acclaimed speaker Eddie Slowikowski will keynote the event with a presentation aimed at empowering the adults in our community to engage with teens and build powerful relationships to support them.
A panel discussion will follow with experts from our community and schools sharing practical tips related to relationships, academic pressures, social media and social and emotional well-being. The panel includes an Assistant Dean from Marquette University, an Outreach Coordinator from Rosecrance Treatment Centers, a medical professional from Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, as well as District 230 staff members Social Worker Hilary Ortiz (CS), Teacher Doug Bozych (VJA), Counselor Beth Gulden (AAS), and Teacher John O'Malley (CS).
A resource fair will follow allowing participants to seek answers to their personal questions as well as connect with resources available in our schools and our community.
