Help Your Child Flourish
Presented by Dr. Richard Gilman
HS MP Room
What factors lead to allowing a student to flourish?
How can these factors be enhanced?
Students who possess a number of positive strengths and qualities are said to be “flourishing.” Flourishing students display optimal academic, interpersonal, and psychological functioning – both now and later as adults. But what are these factors, and how do you as a parent ensure your child is benefitting from them?
This presentation, led by Dr. Rich Gilman of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, will provide data that can answer these important questions. Dr. Gilman is a
professor in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the director of school-based mental health programming. He is also the director of the Greater Cincinnati Youth Resiliency-Risk Project.
COMING: EBTH AUCTION TO BENEFIT CAPITAL GRANTS
By giving one small item to the auction you can give in a big way to our schools!
Think little….Think big…. there are many items in your home that someone else would love to buy!
Did you know most of the items won are shipped out of state so that means the money that benefits our students comes from outside our district?
Be a part of the excitement!

Is your child a natural born runner or are you looking for a way to help burn some of their energy during the cold months? Then Primary Pacers is the after school club for your child!
The runners will be training on the paths around the baseball field next to the school and at Stephan Park. In the event of rain or extreme temperatures, we will train indoors at the school. Students can be picked up at the front of the school at 4:15
The cost will be a $20. Checks can be made payable to Indian Hill Primary School and be sent in with your child to the attention of Mrs. Amy Campa. Please write “Primary School Pacers” in the memo line of your check. The funds will be used for running incentives and a race day t-shirt for your student.
Due to high demand, this year the club will only be open to 1st and 2nd graders.
Please register ASAP as membership will be capped at 30 students. Once registration is confirmed send in your money and your child will be directed to this club on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school unless a note is sent in with your child indicating otherwise on the day the club meets.
