Special Evening for Parents, Administrators, and Counselors, and Others Who Wish to Attend
The Student at School is The Child at Home
Tuesday, July 25th-6:00-7:30 p.m.
Education is about understanding, not merely the knowledge related to a specific discipline or parental /educational strategy, but an understanding of the immense variation of our children's social, emotional, and educational backgrounds, which demand individualized acceptance and consideration. The development of higher order thinking skills and problem solving techniques, creativity training, and autonomous learning should serve as the foundation for the emergent and realized potential of the children we raise and the students we teach. Learn more about the strategies, practices, tools and resources available to parents and educators, while recognizing that a focus on interest and learning style can provide a wealth of experience.
