Parent Education Event: Parenting the Only Child

Join us for this informative event.  As accomplished child and adolescent psychoanalysts, the Barretts bring a wealth of professional (and personal) experience on the topic of raising a singleton.  They will discuss the ups and downs of raising and being an “only” child.   Many of the issues common for singletons also affect oldest children or youngest children separated from siblings by a large age gap.  This topic is of great social relevance and should be an informative night for all.

Friday, April 7
First Friday Coffee

Please join us for our monthly coffee and bring food to share if you can!  Eighth grade parents will be on hand to discuss the high school application process.
