MAKING THE CASE FOR BOYS IN INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS: AN EQUITY (AND INCLUSION) ISSUE
Wednesday, October 10 | 6:30 pm, Community Hall
Roger Bridges will invite us to engage in a conversation about the ways in which we could and should support boys to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. He will provide practical examples of effective programming and supports for boys and lead us in discussions about self-regulation and discipline as they relate to best practices and positive outcomes for boys.
