Parent Academy and Parent-Principal Coffee

Our “Parent Academy” Program.  Raising (and educating) adolescents is not an easy job!  Did you know that one of the most rapid periods of brain development for humans (second only to infancy) occurs during the middle school years?  This dynamic, fun, and sometimes challenging period of development means that our kids are constantly changing and parenting can feel like a moving target.  Parents are often having to learn new parenting skills as they go along. Fortunately, our MAMS staff is highly experienced in working with this age-group and we want to offer support to parents.  To support this goal, we plan on holding several “Parent Academy” sessions throughout the year. Each session will focus on different topics related to raising adolescents and will be led by highly-qualified staff members and community experts.  Here are the focus topics and times:

  • Supervising Computers in the Home: (September 11, 2019 -- After Open House)
  • Screens and Teens: November 20, 2019, 6:00pm in Learning Commons
  • Vaping: January 29, 2020, 6:00pm in Learning Commons
  • Anxiety: March 18, 2020, 6:00pm in Learning Commons
  • Dating and Relationships: May 13, 2020, 6:00pm in Learning Commons

More to come on these sessions as we get closer to each.  SAVE THE DATES!  



Parent-Principal Coffee Program.  In addition to the Parent Academies, we will continue to offer “Parent-Principal Coffee” sessions throughout the year, typically once per quarter.   The goal of the parent coffees is for parents to be able to learn more and share their feedback with the principal and other school staff on educational happenings at the school.  Some sessions might start with a particular focus, but then can be about whatever the parents in attendance want to talk about. Here are the Parent Coffees for the year:
