Cedar Lane is a voting location for the Vienna community.  On January 10, elections will be held here.  As usual, voters will come in through the door by the music room and exit out through the gym.  Because of this, our gym classes and music classes will be held in alternative locations on this day.

 

School Wide Presentation

Craig James is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience in both the private and public sectors.  He is the Co-Founder and Director of Operations of Insight Into Action Therapy.

 

Craig is an expert in substance abuse and substance dependence treatment and has provided numerous trainings to parents, schools, and consultation to other clinicians on this topic.

 

Craig has co-authored the manual for the Post Dispositional Unit in Fairfax County, a dual diagnosis program that provided education and therapy for teens with mental health and substance abuse problems.

 

Craig’s clientele of adolescents and adults includes students, business executives, professional and amateur athletes, and those with court involvement. www.insightactiontherapy.com

 

Students will come down in 2 groups. 10th & 11th Grades from 12:30 - 1:15

9th & 12th Grades from 1:30 - 2:15. Opt out forms were sent home on 1/3, if you want to opt your child out of the presentation, please return the opt out form to the main office.

 

STEP Transition Presentation

This presentation is designed for 11th and 12th grade students who have been identified for potential Davis/Step after graduation.  Students and parents will be notified directly from our ETR, Ms. Veltri.  If you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected]

 

STEP is for students aged 18-22 with disabilities who need a modified curriculum. The STEP program curriculum focuses on career and life skills. Students spend the majority of their day working on employment-related skills. Students may spend up to 5 hours per day on an independent job site. STEP students also take part in work-based learning activities. 

 

Underclass Photo Make Ups

Makeup Photo Day at Cedar Lane is Thursday, January 19.  

 

For any questions about school photos, please contact Robb Metry at Cedar Lane School at [email protected]  or call the school at 703-208-2400.

 

New Year’s Resolutions

In January, many people will head to their local Target or Michaels to find a new planner. The crisp, fresh feeling of new paper to write new and improved goals gets some of us excited. When thinking of your goals consider making them SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time bound), this method breaks your goals down into specific objectives and makes it easier for you to track your progress. What goals would you like to share with your child, to show them examples of healthy adult introspection? Introspection, looking within, is necessary to learn how to manage stress in a healthy manner. What regular coping skills can be implemented into your daily/ weekly routine? Some goals may be physical, spiritual, financial, or emotional. Would it be easier to have serious conversations over a family dinner? Or maybe regular family dinners, spark joy and connection that’s often missing.

 

Research has shown that family therapy is the best treatment option for young people who misuse drugs and alcohol (SAMHSA). Many people use drugs to manage life’s hardships when they feel disconnected from themselves or others. The opposite of addiction is connection, and young people benefit from connection with their families. Families who have a common mission based on autonomy and openness instead of secrecy and silence thrive. Families teach young people how to manage stress when they communicate honestly and openly with one another. Learning how to manage stress early in life could be a major factor in whether or not a young person decides to use drugs.

Mental Health, Coping & Addiction

One in four Americans suffers from a mental illness. Almost 3 in 5 people with mental illness will receive no treatment or medication. In 2019, an estimated 47.6 million adults (19% of the country) had a mental illness, but only 43% received any kind of mental health care (Johns Hopkins). There are many reasons why a person may turn to drugs or alcohol initially, including using these mind-altering substances as a coping mechanism for stress, difficult emotions, physical ailments, and other issues. Drugs and alcohol can provide a temporary respite from reality and everyday life. They can enhance pleasure and decrease inhibitions and anxiety.  Drug use can be an unhealthy coping mechanism. Coping mechanisms are habits formed over time that serve to help a person manage situations or stress levels.

 

Not all coping mechanisms are maladaptive or destructive; however, addiction is both.

 

Before using drugs as a coping strategy here are some recommendations for a healthier mindset. The goal is to identify the “void” or issue and work towards healing. In the meantime, experts recommend diet and exercise as great places to start. See your Primary Care Physician and a therapist if needed. Quality sleep is also a major factor in a healthy mind. Surround yourself with good people and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

Soda and Paint PBIS Activity

Alcohol & The Holidays

The holidays usually involve family time, games, movies, food, and possibly drinks. The holidays may involve less family members this year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean less alcohol for some. Alcohol consumption has increased during the pandemic and when ABC stores were deemed essential it didn’t help lower those rates (ABC News, September 29, 2020). Many people are still trying to figure out how to navigate our “new normal” since a global pandemic wasn’t on our to-do list in 2020, but we encourage you to consider a few things during these trying times.

Questions to consider when drinking with your family:

  1. What message am I sending if I drink in excess around my underage child?
  2. Have I had conversations about responsible drinking with them?
  3. Are the conversations I have about alcohol realistic?
  4. Do my conversations with others reinforce alcohol use as a coping skill during stressful times?
  5. What messages am I sending my underage child if I allow them to drink with me or another adult in the house?

Info to consider:

 

“One-third of Fairfax County students (33.7%) reported drinking alcohol at least once in their lifetime, ranging from 18.8% of eighth-grade students to half of twelfth-grade students (49.4%). One in seven students (15.2%) reported drinking alcohol in the past month, ranging from 4.5% of eighth-grade students to 27.7% of twelfth-grade students.” (FCPS Youth Survey 2020)

 

“Female students reported higher rates of alcohol use in their lifetime (36.1% compared to 31.2% of male students), in the past month (17.1% and 13.1%, respectively), and binge drinking in the past two weeks (7.3% and 6.5%, respectively)” (FCPS Youth Survey 2020).
