Poway Unified School District
Special Board Meeting

Dear Students, Staff, Families and Community Members,

I received this video greeting from Imagine Learning, a language and literacy software program, and wanted to share it with you. 

The video celebrates the importance of the work each and every one of you does to encourage PUSD students to dream, imagine and be their very best.

Thank you for your commitment to our students and our community.  I wish all of you a joyful holiday season!

John P. Collins





What Every Parent Needs to Know about Eating Disorders and College!

WHEN: Wednesday, 1/14 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
WHERE: @ Poway High

Divya Kakaiya, Ph.D. www.healthywithin.com
“Orthorexia is a common term used for when a person has developed an unhealthy obsession with eating “clean”. In the last 5 years since there has been a growing movement towards organic farming and clean eating coupled with rejecting the industrial production of food. With increasing headlines discussing the “Obesity Epidemic” and a college student’s fear of gaining the so called “Freshmen 15” it is easy for a college student to be exposed to the manipulation of the American diet and as he/she is becoming a critical thinker about these issues, a natural point of rebelling the system would be to become vegan.” http://healthywithin.com/index.php/farm-to-table/

“Co-parenting is not an exact science. You may feel totally competent one day and sure you are a miserable failure the next. Learning to roll with the punches and keep striving for the best results will help you, your co-parent and your child keep perspective and maintain a happy and nourishing relationship. If you need additional help, try a co-parenting workshop or an online co-parenting program to learn tips and tricks to help you and your co-parent be successful and happy in your nurturing roles.”http://family.lovetoknow.com/co-parenting-tips
