School/Family Meetings Focus on Student Wellness & Succcess

Dante Capers, Associate Superintendent of Student Services, Student Wellness, and Success, and Christine Brugler, Trauma Informed Care Specialist, made their rounds to each Warren City Schools building in December to meet with parents and discuss how families can work with the schools to enhance their children’s educational experiences.

Mr. Capers and Mrs. Brugler shared information with the attendees about the high levels of post-pandemic stress students are experiencing nationally, and how the school and families can collaboratively work to support student wellness and success.

The Coffee Klatch sessions focused on data and intervention strategies regarding child and teen stress and mental health, while spotlighting some of the supports available within the school community.

Mrs. Brugler shared information on trauma informed schooling, and shared strategies for parents to use at home.

“These gatherings are part of the district’s ongoing efforts to work with families to facilitate and enhance student wellness and success,” Capers said. “A key part of this collaboration is communication and keeping those communication lines open between the schools and our families.”

School principals, community liaisons and other staff members also attended the meetings and discussed various services and resources available to students and their families through the schools.
