2nd Annual Hot Topics Event
There's an upcoming Elementary & Middle School Hot Topics event on October 17th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Mill Pond School. This evening of workshops is designed for parents and caregivers of children in grades K-8 and is being co-hosted by Westborough Connects, Westborough Public Schools, and Westborough Youth and Family Services.
This is the second Hot Topics event being held by these groups. Over 140 people registered for our first event and attendee feedback was very positive. We are happy to offer this event once again. Based on input and feedback from parents in the community, we are offering 8 different workshops during the evening. Workshop topics include social-emotional learning, dyslexia, stress management, nutrition, having difficult conversations, handling conflict, mindfulness, and youth behavior risk.
Each workshop will be 40 minutes and attendees will be able to attend 2 workshops of their choice. To learn more and register for the upcoming program, please click HERE.
