THIS THURSDAY – Hear Dr. Michael Thompson speak on “The Pressured Child”

Dr. Michael Thompson on “The Pressured Child” Thursday, October 23, 7-9 pm, Newton North Auditorium

The push for students to excel at school and get into the best colleges has never been more intense. Through his experience as a clinical psychologist, school consultant and speaker on the topics of children, schools and parenting, Dr. Thompson, co-author of Raising Cain, addresses America’s performance-driven obsession with the accomplishments of its kids – and provides a deeply humane response.

Co-Sponsored by:

Bigelow Middle School PTO, Day Middle School PTO, the Educational Excellence Fund of the Newton North High School PTSO, PTO Council, The Newton Partnership and the Newton Parent Advisory Council for Special Education.

We had our first PTO meeting of the year on October 3rd.  A copy of the meeting minutes are posted on the PTO website if you missed the meeting.  We will soon be posting a schedule of the meetings throughout the year.  We hope to see you.  All are welcome!
