GUEST SPEAKERS AT NOVEMBER PTA MEETING

Mark your calendars!!  At the next general PTA meeting on Wednesday, November 12 at 7 pm in the library, the PTA welcomes special guest speakers Rachna Varia, PhD and Kristi Guadagnoli, PsyD, co-founders of MindWellPsychology. They will present a talk entitled Your Child’s Mind: Promoting Motivation, Grit, and Executive Functioning.

Their talk will identify how our children learn and the importance of using natural strengths and developing strategies to improve on weaknesses.  In addition, they will discuss the role of executive functioning, or how a student can learn to learn. Learning is an active process and many students have a more passive or disorganized approach.

•What is the role of motivation and perseverance?
•How can we teach and model the importance of grit or working hard?
•How do we parent and teach our children without it becoming a power struggle? 

Although the PTA does not provide babysitting during PTA meetings, your children are welcome to attend and quietly read our wonderful library books.  We hope to see you there!
