Hi everybody… We’re postponing tonight’s 3n1 until Friday, 9/25. It just didn’t make a lot of sense to have people outside that long given the air quality outside. Let me know if your high schooler is interested in working the polls this November AND/OR is still interested in sending postcards to (mostly) people who’ve been kicked off the voter rolls.
High School Bonfire and Movie Night, Rescheduled to September 25th, 7:00pm
We’re cranking up the fire pit and pulling out the projector screen in the WPC parking lot to enjoy a socially distant but civically engaged movie night! Avery Schoen (Tam alum) will be there to share briefly about her experience as a poll worker and will bring postcards for us to fill out for disenfranchised voters. It will be great to reconnect in person and give youth a feeling that they can contribute to our election process. All COVID guidelines will be followed.

Have 4 Minutes to Read? – 3-N-1 – Bonfire, Movie, Civic Activism!
One of the things that impresses me about many of our current youth (and this generation in general) is their civic engagement. Is it just me or do they seem to know more about policy issues better than previous generations? They care. They want to do something. They cannot vote. They then feel helpless and frustrated.
During our bonfire and movie night we’ll have a table set up with postcards, pens, etc that we’re sending to disenfranchised voters (i.e., people who haven’t voted for many years or aren’t registered) to help get them to the polls. A recent Tam alum, Avery Schoen, is going to briefly talk about her work reaching out to these sorts of voters and also her experience as a poll worker at the age of 17.
We will also have application from the county for any of our students who may be interested in applying to be a poll worker. That is a very simple way for our youth to get involved, feel like they can play a part in this thing we call democracy, and also help protect the at-risk population that normally staff the polls. You only have to be 16 years old to work the polls assuming your application is accepted.
So while our students are reconnecting over a movie (have your teen text me if they want to nominate a movie, Black Panther is currently in the lead) and s’mores, they’ll have a chance to do something with purpose. All COVID guidelines will be followed of course. Wear a mask.
We’re very excited to “get the band back together” so to speak.
PS – while RSVPs are always helpful during this time your teens are absolutely encouraged to bring friends. We should have plenty of space in the parking lot.

Have 7 Minutes to Read? - Using the Prodigal Parent Video Series
It can be hard trying to figure out what sorts of spiritual routines or practices would be beneficial in your home. Most of us are lucky enough if we can just “say grace” before dinner. We know that it’s not enough, yet we feel stretched so thin to do more.
That’s why we created the Prodigal Parent Video Series to be consumed in short, bite-sized chunks. Maybe you’re cooking breakfast and can play a 7-minute video in the background, maybe you’re sitting on hold at your desk and can try the 5-minute one, maybe you’re commuting and can play a full 10-minute one. These weekly videos are made to be taken on the go. We’ve even gone the extra step of including any resources discussed in the description of each video for you. You don’t even have to write it down!
Just use what works for you!
