Friday, January 17, 2020 - 10:00am to 1:00pm

Do you struggle to keep your middle schoolers engaged, focused and on task in activities? Students are undergoing complex physical, emotional and cognitive changes. For many youth, the middle school years are a wild ride, filled with insecurity, peer pressure, awkwardness and world-rocking transitions.
