Supporting children after a community loss

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

This just in from Superintendent of Schools Matt Ferron:

“I am writing to invite you for an evening of support and conversation in
partnership with the Weymouth Public Schools as our communities continue to
heal together.

Please join us on Wednesday, August 22nd for a workshop on “Supporting
Children after a Community Loss”. This event will be hosted by Maureen
Patterson-Fede from the Good Grief Program, and Neena McConnico from the
Child Witness to Violence Project, both from Boston Medical Center. They
will share information on how grief, loss, and difficult events can impact
children and families and provide strategies to help us with the healing
process. The workshop will be held at the John Curtis Free Library in
Hanover from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. This workshop is intended for parents,
caregivers, staff and community members. For more information, please see
the attached flyer. We are very grateful for the other community partners
who continue to reach out offering support and who are involved in the
planning of this workshop.

As we all enjoy the remaining weeks of our summer vacation, please continue
to keep the Chesna family and Weymouth Police Department in your thoughts
and prayers.”
