Parent Workshop: Middle School Matters

Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 29, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., in The Stuart Work Library for this special presentation.

Filled with anecdotes and expert advice from her experiences as a middle school counselor, Phyllis Fagell’s book, Middle School Matters, is a must-read for everyone who lives and works with middle schoolers. The MS Faculty read this book over the summer, and parents and faculty are invited to hear Phyllis’ 10 key skills that kids need to thrive in middle school and beyond.

Phyllis L. Fagell has been immersed in middle school for years as a psychotherapist, school counselor, writer, and parent. She believes that middle school shouldn’t be a time to dread, but rather a key phase parents can capitalize on to impart critical skills. Fagell is also a journalist who stays up-to-date on new breakthroughs in counseling, parenting, and education and brings the latest research to life and gives it practicality. With the right concrete, evidence-based strategies, parents can help kids emerge from middle school feeling positive about the experience and ready for the demands of high school and life.
