The Strengthening Families of the Brazos Valley Program is now accepting registrations for the Family Financial Management Class Series to begin on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 6:15 p.m. at the Caldwell Elementary/Intermediate School Cafeteria.

This six weeks the theme is Internet Safety. Keep reading for three tips on how to fact-check information. 1. Exercise "click restraint" - Before you repost, retweet, etc., wait 30 seconds and ask yourself, "Do I know this is real?" If the answer is no, don't share until you do more research. 2. Decode posts - Verify the account name. Look for grammar and spelling errors; they're a big red flag. Go straight to the source; don't rely on screenshots. Look for a link providing further explanations. 3. Don't make these mistakes - Read only a headline. Trust the site that comes up as the top search result. Get wowed by cool visuals. Fall for a trick URL. Not realize a post is an ad. (source: Scholastic Choices Magazine)

Message from Snook ISD Counselors. Check out these two children’s books from the Snook library as a stepping stone to talking about mindfulness with your kids. The Three Questions by Jon Muth - this book is great for reflecting on the importance of doing good deeds and paying attention to the present moment I’m in Charge of Celebrations by Byrd Baylor - the main character in this simply illustrated book celebrates her environment in a way that most wouldn’t For other mindful moments, when reading with your child draw attention to how characters appreciate their surroundings, are present in the moment, or are aware of their feelings.

Message from the Snook ISD Counselors When you are experiencing a particularly stressful moment, a popular mindfulness exercise known as S.T.O.P. can be helpful. Stop. Just take a momentary pause, no matter what you’re doing. Take a breath. Feel the sensation of your own breathing, which brings you back to the present moment. Observe. Acknowledge what is happening, for good or bad, inside you or out. Just note it. Proceed. Having briefly checked in with the present moment, continue with whatever it was you were doing.
