In Life Skills class, the students became part of the You Matter Project. Students give cards to unsuspecting members of the community to remind them that they matter. Giving back to the community at this time of year is the Warren-Walker way. And while we are on the subject...You Matter too! Thank you to all the members of our Warren-Walker community. Each of you plays a special role in making our community so great! Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Break!

Keeping the lines of communication open with your child can be a challenge during the Middle School years. Getting your tween/teen to talk to you in more than grunts and one word answers can be tough. Here are some ideas about how to open up communication with your child.
