Positive Parenting Workshop Wednesday at 8:15

Dear Parents,

Feeling overwhelmed by the daily needs of parenting or just want  to hear about a parenting program that may help you improve your parenting? Parent Planet is an organization based in Nanjing and has trained Triple P – Positive Parenting Program educators ready to help with your parenting needs.

We are fortunate to have them coming to school this Wednesday morning from 8:15 – 9:15 in the Large Meeting Room on the second floor to discuss their services and the Triple P approach to parenting.

Parents of children ages 2 – 16 welcome.

MS/US Assemblies

Good Morning, Middle School and Upper School students!

If you would like to be part of the MS/US Assembly agenda, such as, being the Master of Ceremony (MC), or perform, or do a skit,  or ride a unicycle, or perfect your speech and debate skills, or lead a mindfulness, or simply make an announcement, or anything else we are not thinking of…Contact Mrs. Galaty or Ms. Bezzerides.  They are your Assembly go-to people.

Have a great week!
