Parent Education Forums
Middle and Upper School Parent Education Forums are smaller and more intimate events that are designed to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas among parents. Each Forum begins with a presentation from the SAAS Social and Emotional Development curriculum that is taught to students. Following this segment, an outside expert from the community will present a complementary topic in a discussion-oriented format. For in-person events, parents are invited to sit in grade groupings and share ideas together, allowing space for grade-specific discussions. For remote events, virtual breakout rooms will facilitate small-group discussions. Topics may run the full gamut of parenting issues, including but not limited to: friendships/relationships, stress and anxiety, technology and social media, college preparation, substance use, parent-child communication, and much, much more.
