LAHAINA - Do you care for a parent, spouse, friend or someone living with you, in a care facility or elsewhere?
If so, the "Powerful Tools for Caregivers" class can help you reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance your life, increase your ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.
Classes consist of six sessions held once a week led by two experienced class leaders. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help you take the "tools" you choose and put them into action for your life.
Lahaina Intermediate School Renaissance recently announced the “Students and Staff of the Month” for November: (from left) sixth-grader Matthew Advincula, seventh grader Aaron Yogi, Kausiga Tukana (nominated by the students), seventh-grader Denise Mark Galano, eighth-grader Amanda Mortimore, Clifford Ii (nominated by the staff), eighth-grader Yochabel Domingo and sixth-grader Krystaleia Bettencourt.
