Parent Academy and Parent-Principal Coffee


Our “Parent Academy” Program.
  Raising (and educating) adolescents is not an easy job!  Did you know that one of the most rapid periods of brain development for humans (second only to infancy) occurs during the middle school years?  This dynamic, fun, and sometimes challenging period of development means that our kids are constantly changing and parenting can feel like a moving target.  Parents are often having to learn new parenting skills as they go along. Fortunately, our MAMS staff is highly experienced in working with this age-group and we want to offer support to parents.  To support this goal, we plan on holding several “Parent Academy” sessions throughout the year. Each session will focus on different topics related to raising adolescents and will be led by highly-qualified staff members and community experts.  Below are the dates and times:

  • September 13, 2023, Topic: "Helping Your Teen Stay Safe Online". Presenters: MSAD 75 Technology Department.
  • November 29, 2023, 6:00-7:00pm Zoom Webinar. Topic: "Vaping and its Effect on the Teenage Brain". Presenter: Midcoast Hospital, Maine Health.

Parent-Principal Coffee Program.  In addition to the Parent Academies, we will continue to offer “Parent Coffee” sessions throughout the year, typically once per quarter.   The goal of the parent coffees is for parents to be able to learn more and share their feedback with the principal and other school staff on educational happenings at the school.  Some sessions might start with a particular focus, but then can be about whatever the parents in attendance want to talk about. Here are the Parent Coffees for the year:

  • Wednesday, October 25, 2023 6:00 - 7:00pm in Learning Commons
  • Wednesday, January 24, 2024 6:00 - 7:00pm on Zoom 
  • Wednesday, March 27, 2024 6:00 - 7:00pm in Learning Commons
  • Wednesday, June 5, 2024 6:00 - 7:00pm on Zoom
