Strategies for reducing academic stress and strengthening executive function skills at home

  • Organizational strategies to help your child keep track of his/her belongings and schoolwork
  • Strategies to promote flexible thinking, enhance working memory, and sustain attention

Basic Rights Training
TBD:    February 2018, 7 - 9 pm Natick High School (Lecture Hall - 2nd floor)
A speaker from the Federation for Children with Special Needs helps parents navigate the process to request support services and understand the laws/guidelines surrounding special education. This meeting is highly recommended for parents just starting the special education process or parents that have a child on an IEP but have never attended a Basic Rights workshop before.
2017 Student Services Coffee and Conversations

 All parents are invited to join Tim Luff, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services, and his staff for coffee and conversation.  This is an opportunity for parents to meet in a relaxed setting to learn more about Student Services, to share information, ideas, and to make suggestions.  The staff will be able to share information about happenings in the district as well as goals for the year.  Please note:  Parents with concerns specific to their own student(s) are encouraged to contact their teachers or school staff for more personal discussions.
