Workshops are for parents and guardians of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Gresham.

(Note: There will not be childcare provided. If children come they need to stay with their parents and have something to do.)

Workshop choices:

* Restorative Practices-

exploring what restorative practices are, why they are important, the ways in which Gresham is moving toward implementing restorative practices and how families can support this important work.

* Executive Functioning-

Executive functions let people plan, organize and complete tasks. Learn how to support your student develop these essential skills.

* Mindfulness for Parents-

This is part 1 of a 3 part course. The other required dates are Oct. 16 & Nov. 13. The course will also include on-line portions. Come to either the 5pm or the 6pm session. Both sessions will be the same. Parents will learn how to develop a personal practice of mindfulness, discuss ways of understanding and supporting our children and deepen a sense of Gresham community. We will use Dr. Dan Siegel’s book Brainstorm.

Limited amount of copies available.
