Villa Parent, Tony McNair, has been a Firefighter/EMT for 10 years. He is an EMS instructor at North Seattle Community College. He has been teaching CPR courses for two years and he is certified to teach American Heart Association Courses.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 4 million injuries and illnesses occur annually
in the workplace, and nearly 80 percent of sudden cardiac arrests occur outside the hospital. Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED is a classroom, video-based, instructor-led course that teaches students critical skills needed to respond to and manage a first aid, choking or sudden cardiac arrest emergency in the first few minutes until emergency medical services (EMS) arrives. In this course, students learn skills such as how to treat bleeding, sprains, broken bones, shock and other first aid emergencies. This course also teaches adult CPR and AED use.
Upon successful completion of the course, including a first aid, CPR and AED skills test, students receive a Heartsaver First Aid CPR AED course completion card, valid for 2 years.

Race To Nowhere features the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired. After the screening there will be a discussion with a panel of local educators including Villa’s own James Joseph.
This event is open to the public. Advance tickets are available online for $10 or at the door for $15.

Join us on Monday, April 29, 7-8:30 p.m. at Villa Academy for a presentation by Amy Lang. Amy, a well-known parent educator, therapist, and author, will discuss three simple tips that even smart parents need to take the sting out of the Birds and the Bees talk. You will learn how to start and continue the conversation. You will understand better why your parents’ approach may not have been successful and how you can do it differently. You will leave the discussion feeling more confident and inspired to keep the conversation going. This event is free and open to the public.
Barbara Bennett, M.A., Educational Therapist/Educational Consultant, discusses up-to-date scientific theories about learning disorders such as dyslexia and ADHD. These theories are based upon almost a century of solid research and effective intervention techniques. Barbara Bennett, who trained with key national figures in both dyslexia and ADHD, presents the reasons for a comprehensive evaluation and for an individualized treatment model that works. What is the role of accommodation in the process of skill acquisition? Can your child truly be an independent, functional student who can read, write, spell, do math, think, problem-solve, speak articulately – and turn his or her work in on time?
Ms. Bennett, who served on the WA Branch board of IDA (International Dyslexia Association), is a life-long IDA member. A co-founder of Eastside CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), she co-facilitates its monthly meetings.
Childcare will not be provided.
This event is free and open to the public. Please join us and invite your friends.
