Middle Schooler/Parent Summit: Everyone Talks, Everyone Listens

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The first half of this workshop will involve parents meeting in one group and middle schoolers meeting in another group. The goal is to have middle schoolers discuss what they have learned so far and figure out what they really need their parents to hear and understand. The goal of the parent group will be the same. The second half of this workshop will bring both groups together to then share these new insights and collaborate on next steps.
