Student Council Installation
Monday, November 26
6:30 pm | Theatre
We would like to invite you to our first American Student Council Association installation ceremony on November 26, 2018 at 6:30 pm. Students participating in the ceremony should arrive fifteen minutes early so that we can begin promptly at 6:30. The ceremony will be in the Theatre followed by light refreshments in International Square.
Trends both in and out of our school show students are feeling stressed starting at young ages. This program is part of Carrollwood Day School's commitment to partner with parents to support the overall well-being of our students. Parents with children of all ages are encouraged to attend this program.
Dr. Lindsey O'Brennan is a licensed psychologist and owner of Morningstar Wellness. She works with teens and adults who are experiencing stress, anxiety, and overwhelm due to their school, work, and life demands. She is also an adjunct faculty member and clinical supervisor for school psychology students at University of South Florida. She plays a leadership role in a research project that focuses on developing materials for students, teacher, and parents of high school students in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes to help manage the stress associated with their accelerated coursework.
Dr. O'Brennan has done presentations this year for our 9th and 10th grade classes that were very well received by the students.
We are a group of high school students in Mrs. Montague’s entrepreneurship class, and we are currently completing a social entrepreneurship project for Lead2Feed. The mission of our project is to inspire healthy living for kids. For the culmination of our project we will be hosting a fun outdoor activity event for kids at Lake Park.
We would love to have a lot of kids from CDS Get Up, Get Out, Get Active with us! Read more...
