Nurturing Parenting Class registration due Thursday
Registration forms for the upcoming Nurturing Parenting Class are due by Thursday.
Nurturing Parenting emphasizes the importance of raising children in a warm, trusting and emphatic household, according to a news release.
"We believe that a child who is cared for can learn to care for himself and will develop healthy interactions with others," the release states. "We will look at why each of us parent the way we do and how we can help our children be happy, compliant and respectful."
Classes begin Jan. 11 and run until March 29. They take place from 5 to 8 p.m. each Tuesday at the Moffat County School District administrative building at 775 Yampa Ave. Dinner is provided, along with classes for parents and children.
Registration forms can be picked up at the Early Childhood Center, 775 Yampa Ave., or by calling Lynae Ellgen at 328-8138.
Santa Claus coming to the Daily Press
Attention, children of Craig.
Santa Claus has asked the newspaper to help him gather Christmas letters. Bring your letter to Santa to the Daily Press' office at 466 Yampa Ave., after school on Friday.
You can pick up a letter form from your school or in the newspaper's office any time before Friday. You also may write the letter on your own piece of paper, just to make sure to include your first name and age.
Santa will make a special stop at the Daily Press beginning at 2:30 p.m. Friday to pick up the letters. The letters will be printed in the newspaper leading up to Christmas.
A special surprise will be given to the first children to bring in their letters. Supplies are limited.
This special promotion is available to children 10 and younger.
