Preschool Open House, October 24

Tenth's new preschool got off to a great start in September. It has combined a literature-based curriculum with the Music Together program to provide a rich learning environment for kids. The small size gives the program a warm, intimate feel and children receive lots of individual attention. 

The preschool has just announced that next year it will be adding a five-day Pre-K class. If you'd like to learn more about the program, meet the staff, and tour the room, plan on attending the Open House, next Thursday, October 24 from 7-9 pm. For more information, visit the preschool website.

Managing Stress and Anxiety

There are still a few seats left for the Saturday morning seminar, "Managing Stress and Anxiety." The website says this is an activity of the Nurses Vocational Group. That's a bit misleading: it's not just for nurses; anyone can come. The nurses are hosting this for the rest of us, because they are concerned about how stress may affect our health.

Arlene Navarro and Christine Hayner, both counselors at 2200 Arch Counseling Services, will facilitate the session which runs from 9-11 am. We are offering it at no cost. but space is limited to thirty participants. If you'd like to come, please register here.

Good Sense and Anger

Proverbs 19:11

Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

Here is a good measure for how much good sense you have: How do you respond to offenses? Are you quick to retaliate? Do you quickly throw back a verbal jab? Do you get easily flustered? Do you dash off curt emails or text messages? Then good sense is lacking.
