  1. We have the same problem, getting families involved in family nights and family council meetings. Do you all have any trouble getting families to attend family council meetings? We host a meeting quarterly, but have trouble getting families to participate. We offer free food - but that doesn't seem to be enough to pull the families in. We have tried morning, afternoon and evening meetings as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone else find it difficult to find topics and speakers for these meetings? Thanks, Deana
  2. Thank you! That does help! I've been at this a whopping 3 months now, and the bulletin board is the thing i look forward to the least! We are going with a patriotic theme for July and a lazy days of summer theme for august. My administrator likes for the bulletin boards to be themed toward the month - not a theme in particular. So, some months that's a struggle. Thank you again, I really appreciate the help!
  3. Hi Everyone! Our facility has one large bulletin board located near the nurses stations. I am responsible for changing it each month, and my administrator likes it decorated for the month. Any ideas? I'm struggling with this. We don't want it to look kiddish, but classy - but it's kinda the centerpiece of our facility! As you can tell - this is my least favorite thing to do!! HELP PLEASE!! Deana
  4. Thanks for the great ideas! I will defintely be putting some of them to use.
  5. Just wondering what some of your plans are for summer activities and outings. Our facility is in a very small town with limited resources and limited transportation! Would love to hear your ideas of summer activities. Thanks, Deana a.k.a. doodlebug
