The NYC School Survey went home in backpacks. Each school is required to participate. The survey is completely confidential and gives us a picture of our learning environment from both parent and teacher perspectives. If you lost your survey code, please go on-line and follow the prompts to get a new one.

RAISING RESILIENT GIRLS
MON, APR 9, 6:30 - 8 PM IN THE PS 154 MMR
$25 PER PERSON
Raising Resilient Girls is a 1 hour talk by Girls Leadership Co-Founder Simone Marean. The talk will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A session for parents, teachers, and community members.
Girls Leadership speaks to parents and teachers across the country about the challenges girls face today, the reasons why we see girls struggling, and what we can do to help them. In this acclaimed 1-hour talk (followed by a 30 minute Q&A), we share how to help girls practice assertive self-expression, emotional intelligence and healthy relationships, preparing them for a life of personal and social leadership. This engaging presentation covers the development of girl dynamics beginning in preschool through high school.
As written up in Parents Magazine, this talk concentrates on practical advice that can be executed in a real-life setting, such as:
Talking about your own not-so-happy feelings;
Sharing your mistakes;
Helping your daughter to solve her own problems;
The Good Girl Phenomenon and conflict as an opportunity for positive change
This presentation is for adults only.
While this workshop is for adults only, you can visit the Girls’ Leadership website to register for their multi-week mother-daughter classes at PS 154 this spring. Please follow these links to find out more:
