    Event was tremendously resourceful. P.A.L. did a great job pulling thought leaders like RIISE member schools, Riverdale’s KC Cohen, and Léman’s Christina Karamanoglou, along with other great thinkers around the challenges of the middle school years! These are the years of countless physical and emotional shifts that can effect character development and grades. I’m a witness!!

    Encouraging news and tips were shared about this transition. The message was clear, that as long as parents and schools are in concert in helping kids balance the beginnings of independent thought, development, peer pressure, and achievement with unconditional love, reinforcement and support of character building, personal desired outcomes, consequences, failure, and recognition of their own inherent “smarts”, before you know it, they will be successful 9th graders. Indeed, there is light at the end of the tunnel, my fellow middle school parents!
