Kirk Martin, founder and Director of Education for Celebrate Calm, will be visiting the Shelby County School district to offer a free workshop for parents on Friday, January 9 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and Saturday, January 10 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Oak Mountain Presbyterian Church. Mr. Martin was originally scheduled to present this workshop in October, but it had to be canceled and rescheduled due to severe weather.
