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.
