Middle and High School Students
- Middle and High School Students are invited to connect with others about starting the school year off right. The program will include a discussion of habits, routines, coping skills, and peer support guides for making this school year easier and more successful than ever. Participants will also leave with their very own mantra card – a reminder to persevere when things get tough.
Parents of Middle and High School Students
- Parents will have a separate session with a discussion and Q&A about supporting their kids in starting the school year off right. The discussion will focus on topics such as creating before and after-school routines, managing transitions, expectation, and boundary setting, ensuring kids are busy but not overscheduled, and tips for communicating with teachers.
