Back by popular demand! Join us for our third year of Middle School Boot Camp. A fun and non-intimidating evening to help incoming middle schoolers (and their parents) prepare for the transition. The evening includes a general assembly, a parent-only break out session (complete with Q&A with a licensed family counselor), and hands-on activities for the kids to help practice the necessary skills they'll need to thrive in the halls of middle school. There are a wide variety of non-district specific topics, including how to build a support system, various study techniques, conflict resolution, scheduling and organization methods, working with an agenda...plus time with an actual padlock! The evening culminates in a full-participant simulation of Middle School. This is a time to "jump through hoops" and put into practice the techniques shared throughout the evening. Light refreshments will be served.
