Birds, Bees, and #MeToo—Helping Our Kids Build Gender Equality featuring author Bonnie J. Rough
Mark your calendar for PTA’s next General Membership Meeting (open to everyone, no membership required) Tuesday, January, 15, 6:30-8:00 PM. Guest Speaker Bonnie J. Rough, author of Beyond Birds and Bees: Bringing Home a New Message to Our Kids About Sex, Love, and Equality, will share the practical lessons she learned as a parent and journalist when she took a close look at the world-famous Dutch approach to sex education, instrumental in producing one of the most sexually healthy and gender-equal societies on the globe. With immediate takeaways for PreK-5th families and time for sharing and questions, this event will show how we can make the most of—and enjoy—life’s many opportunities to change the conversation with our kids as we equip them to build a more equitable and inclusive future.

Parent Coffee – 8:40-9:30 in the TM Library.
Please join Reading Specialist Alison Miller to learn more about Reading Comprehension.
Students often read smoothly and accurately. Then, when they are asked to think critically about what they read, they struggle to put together their ideas to prove that they understand what they read. While accuracy is an important component to reading, comprehension is another element that determines a child’s reading level. Learn more about how we assess reading, comprehension, and what you can do at home to help support your child become a successful reader.
