Upcoming CCA Parent WorkshopsTop of Page

The discussion planned with the authors of "Grown & Flown" on March 16 has been cancelled. We received word from our authors that out of an abundance of caution (they are from New York), they have to postpone their appearance next week. Our hope is to kick off the school year with "Grown and Flown" in September.
"What I Wish My Parents Knew" Parent Forum: April 14, 2020 from 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm starting in the Proscenium Theater. An event designed by students with the purpose of establishing a new perspective on teenage adversities. Click to RSVP  Please sign up well in advance as space is limited!"
Look for other parent workshops that feature YouSchool founder Scott Schimmel and aim to support parents in supporting their students academic, social, and emotional well-being at CCA. These workshops are from 7:00 - 8:00pm.

Upcoming Community Workshops

Wednesday, March 11: League of Women Voters-sponsored program (see attached flyer) for the general public which will address:
  • Gun Violence Restraining Orders
  • Safe Gun Storage Ordinance
These tools can help prevent suicides, unintentional child shootings, domestic violence, and school and mass shootings. We know that our students are anxious about the possibility of a troubled student on campus with a gun. Gun Violence Restraining Orders (GVROs) are a way to take guns away from those who would harm themselves or others.

SDUHSD Parent Workshop led by Stan Collins

On November 7 and 14, 2019, the San Dieguito Union High School District hosted Stan Collins to speak on the topic of how to talk with your child and increase connectedness, awareness and self-harm and suicide prevention. The night provided our parent community with toolkit of prescriptive tips on how to help and support children socially and emotionally on a daily basis. Stan Collins is a Suicide Prevention Specialist at the San Diego County Suicide Prevention Council and has worked in the suicide prevention field for over 19 years. He has presented and provided training to over 650,000 adults and youth including educators, parents, medical professionals, military personnel, and law enforcement on the subject of suicide prevention. Click to here to access the slide presentation from the November 7th parent forum.
CCA teachers are providing this safety information to their classes during December 2019. The informational slide deck includes personal wellness and coping strategies, protective factors, risk factors and warning signs, avenues for reporting concerns, and various ways to get support.
