Our school family uses Conscious Discipline to teach our children to express and manage their emotions, to resolve conflicts and to create a caring community in our classrooms. Be sure to visit Shubert’s Classroom to learn about some of the classroom routines and rituals. The school offers parents Saturday/evening sessions with Mandy Lloyd, a certified Conscious Discipline instructor so that you can use the same language and skills at home.
Do you ever feel frazzled as you rush out the door in the morning or as you try to shop for groceries in the afternoon? Do you ever offer up a sigh and give in just to make the whining stop?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this series is for you!
