The WORKS will be CLOSED this evening (Wednesday, February 13th) due to weather conditions and next Wednesday (February 20) for Mid-Winter Break. The WORKS will reopen on Wednesday, February 27th.
Holiday Baskets in December was a huge success. THANK YOU to all who participated and helped make it so! And a HUGE shout-out to Neha Raichur, Heather Corbin, Lori Ramsay and Krista Keller who worked throughout the year to ensure such a successful and smoothly-run event. Shoreline families are fortunate to have such incredibly dedicated and amazing leaders!
A Note from Heather, Neha, Lori & Krista: Thanks to the generous contributions from the local Shoreline PTA's, we were able to serve 570 boxes of food to help families over the winter break. We were also able to give gifts and gift cards to 1148 children and teens aged 0-18 years old in the Shoreline community. We appreciate all of the donations, as well as the fabulous volunteers who helped to make the event a success.
**We are hoping to find a few people to start shadowing Neha and Heather in order to transition to some new leadership in the next few years. Interested? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Program highlights: Many people are surprised to learn that their bright child’s unique “quirks” are actually well-studied social & emotional behavior patterns that appear across large populations of highly intelligent children. Whether it’s refusing to wear shirts with buttons or tags, overreacting to the slightest criticism, gravitating towards adults and older children, forgetting to turn in their homework, trouble with handwriting, anxiety about trying something new, or preferring a book to a party, these and many other perplexing behaviors are common in this population. Learn what’s normal, what to expect as they grow, and why genuine challenge is vitally important for kids’ social and emotional development, as well as developing their academic talents, from the preschool and elementary years all the way to high school and beyond.
