All eyes will be on daughter, Katey's, project today. As an experienced middle school administrator, Katey sees and hears the results of cyber bullying daily. She and her co-authors of WTF (Why Teens Fail) will join her keynote in educating parents and students about the dangers of various apps and how to stay safe. Proud maman:)


Registration is officially open for our upcoming SUMMIT FOR SUCCESS: MAKE A KIDNECTION! at Seville Golf and Country Club! This event is open to students in grades 4-12, educators, parents, and community members!

Michael Gurian, world renowned author and speaker, will keynote our event. If you have ever wondered what makes boys and girls so different, why your spouse does and says things so differently than you, and how we can best support our kids in an ever changing digital world, you must come!
He WILL change the way you see your children and your approach to parenting!

Adult breakout sessions will include three focused topics by valley authors and experts:
1) How to support boys and girls in their learning and development when their brains and needs are so drastically different in and out of the classroom 
2) How to keep kids safe on social media and create a digitally aware household
3)How to socially and emotionally support your child at school AND home

Student sessions will be centered on three topics:
1) Self-empowerment and advocacy
2) Digital citizenship and how to be safe on social media 
3) How to create connections with others that honor YOU

Sessions run concurrently. Parents go left, students go right! Lunch together! 

Students will be peppered with fun engaging workshops, NFL alumni appearances, and a poolside rock concert with their friends. (Lifeguards on duty!)

*Students will rotate together by grade level*
