Conflict Resolution Workshop For Kids at Capitol Hill Library

A child’s school years can provide memories that will last a lifetime.  But sometimes those memories are not good ones. 

Kids having conflict problems in school can learn a lot from Capitol Hill Library’s Conflict Resolution Workshop, part of the library’s ongoing School Yard Survival series.  The session meets from 4:00p.m. to 5:00p.m. on Monday, Nov. 22.   The library is located at 334 SW 26th St.

“Elementary and middle school can be hard,” said librarian Jennifer Jones, “and we’d like to do what we can to help.  Donna Martin, the Guidance Counselor at Capitol Hill Elementary will be here to talk with kids about how to resolve conflicts in a peaceful manner.  Even when dealing with the most intimidating classmates, there are ways to deal with common problems in a non-confrontational way.”

Capitol Hill’s School Yard Survival sessions are free and open to the public.  For more information call the library at 634-6308.
