A year-long list of parent seminars and workshops will be updated regularly by the PTSA and posted here so that anyone interested can see the programs being organized this year to help parents be even stronger partners and "first teachers" of their students. Each seminar lists a contact person who has answers to questions and more details about the seminar. To learn more about the Issaquah PTSA Council, please visit:

Teens and Stress

Monday, May 18, 2015 – Skyline High School Library, 1122 228th Ave. SE, Sammamish, WA
7:00 - 8:00 p.m.
The Skyline PTSA is please to present Teens and Stress with Sheri Gazitt, a local parent and teen educator. In today’s world, the percentage of teens with diagnosed anxiety and depression has skyrocketed. Teens are bombarded with the message of “do it all”, “strive for perfection”, and “smile”. As parents, we can influence and guide our teens as they manage the overwhelming stressors in their lives. You will walk away from this presentation a different outlook  and new tools for supporting your overwhelmed teenager. 
Sheri's presentation will cover: Signs, Symptoms, Effects of Stress, Common Stressors, Our Influence, Coping Mechanisms, as well as answer your questions.
