Parent Workshop: Skills for a Successful School Year

Success in school becomes a real challenge when organizational skills are not developed to an age-appropriate level. The first Parent Workshop of the 2023-24 school year will focus on time management.

Dr. Jennifer Bashant will offer a virtual workshop to discuss “Skills for a Successful School Year: Organize, Prioritize and Manage Time,” from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 5.

“This workshop is a perfect way to kick off our Parents as Partners Webinar series,” said Michael Brannigan, the director of Social and Emotional Learning and School Development. “Dr. Bashant will talk about establishing and maintaining the routines and organizational skills necessary to build a successful school year.”

  • constantly leave a trail of food every time he has a snack? 
  • drop clothing on the floor as soon as she takes it off? 
  • leave papers strewn everywhere with no systems for keeping track of them? 

Research indicates that these executive skills are the most important skills to have in order to succeed in school. During this webinar, parents will learn specific strategies to help their children get organized and stay organized in a way that works for them.
