Weekly Parent Email – February 26, 2021

February 26, 2021

This has been a trying year for everyone–especially youth. As we continue to serve your family, we want to be sure your student feels supported. Starting Monday, March 1, Williamsburg Academy will be hosting an online Wellness Week to provide resources for your student to help them navigate the challenges they face. Each day will cover a different topic: 

  • Monday: Online Safety
  • Tuesday: Social Boundaries
  • Wednesday: Body Image
  • Thursday: Emotional Health
  • Friday: Personal Empowerment

We want to make sure your student has everything they need to succeed, and we’re excited to experience Wellness Week with them! All parents were sent an email this week with each day’s content and details about the online course. As always, please feel free to reach out if there is anything we can do to improve your student’s educational experience.

Warmly,

Anya Yeager

Executive Director, Williamsburg Academy
