The Benji Project is a local non profit organization missioned to "Help teens navigate emotional ups and downs with greater ease"
Adolescence is a time of growth and self-discovery. But it is also often fraught with confusion, anxiety or depression. Mindfulness and self compassion can help teens cope more effective. The Benji Project provides programs focused on students ages 11-to 19 and their parents. The workshop "Making Friends with Yourself" shares specific tools to build greater resilience.
Join honorary host Holley Carlson of PTEF or a special evening of theater in support of The Benji Project.

The Port Townsend School District would like to announce Patrick Gaffney as the new Blue Heron Principal. Mr. Gaffney has 19 years of service in public education and has been a teacher, counselor, and administrator; most recently he taught mathematics in Memphis, Tennessee.
He was a 7-12 Assistant Principal/Athletic Director in Chewelah, Washington prior to his Tennessee experience. He began his teaching career in Ocean Shores, Washington.
During Tales, Texts & Theater , the entire sixth grade student body of Port Townsend’s Blue Heron Middle School will work with vital, contemporary artists in a variety of disciplines—creative writing, theatrical movement, music, and visual art—for a weeklong immersion in creativity.
Beginning each day with a core subject, students get an in depth concentration on a genre of their choice. Then they explore by learning about other art forms in their other three classes, seeing how the different arts interconnect.
Each afternoon, the core artist faculty show and talk about the work they do. At the end of the week, students share their creative experiments with the community in a student showcase performance
