TREK: A Middle School Transition Program

TREK: A Middle School Transition Program

Starting a new phase in school can be stressful.  Not knowing what to expect can bring up a lot of questions for your middle schooler, such as:

  • How will I handle the pressure of the increased emphasis on homework and grades?
  • Will it be hard to make friends?
  • What if I lose my current friends?
  • How do I deal with social media challenges?

TREK is a fun and engaging workshop that will help your middle schooler address these challenges and create strategies to make this transition less stressful.

TREK is offered on two nights. September 8 provides an emphasis on a middle school girls' experience, and September 15 provides an emphasis on a middle school boys' experience.  Each program runs from 5 to 9 p.m.
