Supporting Mr. Kay
Several people have asked how they can continue to support Scott Kay and his family. Friends of Mr. Kay are raffling off a week’s stay at a private beach house in Nags Head, North Carolina. The money raised will provide some additional comfort and support to the Kay family as Scott begins treatment in the coming weeks. The house is located at 42222 West Breeze Way, Nags Head, sleeps 10, and the week can be mutually agreed upon between the winner and the owner. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by seeing Mrs. Fields in Massey Hall. The winning ticket will be drawn on March 30. Click here for more details on the house.
Does your student often scramble to be on time or deliver work on time? Is starting a project too much? Or getting to the finish line a chore? Tales from Wonderland: Executive Functioning Workshop at TNCS this summer may help. Students will learn their executive functioning strengths and pair them to weaknesses to initiate, plan, and executive a party or short term goal.
The TNCS Summer Programs brochure is live and registration is open! Classes are held from June 17 – July 12. Click here to see this year’s brochure. Register early and save!
