WELCOME TO THE IB PARENT GROUP - A COMMITTEE OF THE PTSA
|MYDONSLIFE - PARENT EDUCATION AND STUDENT SUPPORT|
myDonsLife is a program which hopes to help Del Mar's Community of Parents, Guardians and Students enjoy an educational experience that is more amazing and memorable by offering parent education and student support.
Parents want to learn more about their students' lives at Del Mar, and Dons may want a little help along the high school way. That's where we come in!
myDonsLife offers seminars/workshops to parents, students and the community during the school year. myDonsLife will also provide a few valuable resources (articles, videos, webinars, digital presentations, etc.,) that we hope will help the DM Community better understand our school's academic programs, life at school, the health and wellness of students, enrichment beyond textbooks (yes!) and more.
Further below are summaries of our 2017-2020 seminars . . . please click on the title to expand and view all events.
2019-20 "myDonsLife CARES" ARTICLES
Exams are almost over and the stress that comes along with them. Stress is always in our lives and not necessarily a bad thing. We care if our students are stressed and offer some helpful information to counter this uncomfortable feeling and a few tips on how parents can help their children thrive through tough times.
Dons - you can have your cupcake and eat it too. :)
This month, we care if you're feeling anxious!
As we reach the halfway mark of the fall semester, as students' schedules fill with academic assignments, IB assessments, college applications, sports, music, clubs, work and family commitments, it is normal for students to feel a little "anxious" and experience anxiety. We want our students to know we care because anxiety is real and common.
We gathered some valuable information from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Mayo Clinic, and the Children's Mental Health Division of the Center for Disease Control, and we are offering it to our school community as reference. Our hope is that families find some of this information useful, and maybe it can help parents and their students work through anxiety symptoms and challenges.
In addition to the information below and the mental health resources found on the Del Mar website, students are always welcome to speak with Del Mar's caring team of Guidance Counselors and CASSY Therapists. Sometimes a hug does wonders, or a coffee with a good friend, and other times, yoga or a good cry with someone who cares (like a sister, pet or Mom).
