Providing students with strong instructional routines and habits is a key determinant of success, but how can you make sure that these structures exist when students are not in school? Using research on effective executive functioning skills, Dr. Anthony Di Giacomo will lead a session on how families can support the middle 8 hours – the time when students are off-campus, out of school (the first 8), and not asleep (the final 8). Families will explore ways to improve home-school connections to help build better routines and skill sets beyond the classroom walls. There will also be a discussion about what parents can do to continue to support their students over the summer.
This program is open to parents of school-age children from elementary school to high school. Students are welcome to attend. Dr. Tony Di Giacomo, the founder of Novella Prep, is a lifelong educator with over 20 years of experience in the fields of admissions, teaching, and education research.
