Help Your Child Tackle School Projects: Tools and Strategies for Strengthening Executive Function for parents/guardians of 5th- 9th graders THURSDAY MARCH 1, 2018 at the Masconomet High School Library from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. Long-term school projects can be difficult for students. Parents want their children to do the work independently. When kids are struggling and the due date approaches, it is tempting to jump in and become overly-involved in completing the project. Instead, parents can learn to strategically coach their 5th – 9th graders. This program was developed and will be presented by Stephanie Meegan and Rosemarie Lucey. More Info Here.
