ParentEd.: P.E.P. Talks

ParentEd.: P.E.P. Talks

Mr. Steve Kyle, Assistant Head of School for Christian Life, will be hosting multiple sessions of
his P.E.P. (Parents Engaging Purposefully) Talks to help parents navigate the teen years. P.E.P. Talks will be mandatory for all parents with students in grades 6 and 9 each year. If you’ve attended in the past, please do so again, as Mr. Kyle’s message will be different than previous sessions. All parents are welcome to attend. Lower school P.E.P. Talks are also open to all parents for great insight into the primary years.
