Attention 8th Grade Parents:
Parent Circles Starting Up
The Ridgefield Community Coalition Against Substance Abuse (RCCASA), in association with the Ridgefield PTAs and Ridgefield Library, offers a program each Spring for parents who will have a child entering high school next year. Parent Circles are small discussion groups, facilitated by an expert in adolescent development, in which you can gain information on evidence-based parenting practices and share insights with other parents. Research continues to demonstrate the importance of proactive parenting, and that specific practices, begun early enough, can make a big difference. Circles are starting up soon. For more information and how to register, follow this link.
The Ridgefield High School National Honor Society will once again begin hosting FREE tutoring/homework help sessions weekly on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Click here for more information.
