What is PALS? A workshop for parents

(PALS stands for Promoting Achievement, Learning and Success)

Where: SMS

Who: YOU and your child!

When: 8:00 AM until approximately 9:30 AM

What is PALS? PALS is for ALL families.  We recognize that there is no one right way to raise a middle school child and not all techniques work for all parents. There are, however, more effective ways to interact with adolescents, and our goal is to provide parents with a range of tools and strategies that they can have at their disposal. PALS focuses on three main components: the social/emotional development, the educational development, and family development through one-on-one time with your child.

Please join us for our 2016-2017 PALS meetings this school year.  This year we will focus on the developmental stage of adolescence and what their learning experiences entail.  We value your partnership as we all work to nurture your child's development in these transformational years.  See you soon!
