Free SENG Model Parent Groups
The Orange City School District offers five free Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted (SENG) Model Parent Groups this spring for Orange schools parents. SENG empowers families and communities to guide gifted and talented individuals to reach their goals. Parents can connect with other parents and discuss topics such as motivation, discipline, stress management and peer relationships. The trained co-facilitators provide a non-judgmental, nurturing atmosphere. Future opportunities to participate in SENG Model Parent Groups will be offered through Orange Community Education and Recreation (fees will apply).
Participation and space is limited for these adult-only groups. Sign-up deadline is March 13. All meetings will take place on the Orange schools campus. To register, visit bit.ly/2SbAtVy.

Orange’s SOUPer Bowl drive
The “SOUPerintendent” with the perfect name, Lynn Campbell, congratulated the “SOUPer” members of the student council for collecting 432 cans of soup for their “SOUPer Bowl of Caring” at Moreland Hills Elementary School. Students picked their favorite Super Bowl team and added cans to the boxes accordingly. The final score was Chiefs with 295 cans and the 49ers with 137. All of the cans were donated to a local food pantry.
