6:30 p.m. Will My Child Be Ready for High School? 30 MIN Presentation by Mr. Urban

Whether it be emotionally, academically and socially, we often ask if our children will be ready for high school.  This question is most often asked when our children hit the senior grades of elementary school.  What makes our children ready for high school?  Is it good grades? Is it friendships?  Bring your questions and thoughts to this discussion.

7:00 p.m. What’s In a Grade?   30 MIN Presentation by Mrs. Pennington

The big question is... What is a grade and what does it mean? In this session, we will be discussing assessment and grading. Specifically, how it has changed over the years, what you should be looking for, and how to interpret the new reporting system for grades 4-8.

7:00 p.m. Growth Mindset    30 MIN Presentation by Mr. Urban

We all want our children to be successful in school, sports, and extracurricular activities.  Research shows that success is often dependent on mindset. Hard work, perseverance, and effort are all hallmarks of a growth mindset and are true indicators of success.  Join us for this informative discussion on instilling a Growth Mindset for children at all grade levels.
