Common Ground Speaker — THIS TUESDAY NIGHT AT WES!
Vicki Hoefle: Duct Tape Parenting: Step Back So Kids Can Step Up

  • Tues., Sept 25, 9:30am @ Saint Andrew’s Episcopal School
  • Tues., Sept 25, 7:00pm @ Woodside Elementary; Sellman
  • Wed., Sept 26, 9:30am @ The Carey School

Vicki Hoefle, author of Duct Tape Parenting, challenges parents to take a step back so their kids can step up – even if it takes a powerful adhesive to keep our mouths shut and hands firmly in laps as we watch our children make their own mistakes. She offers a perspective on what it means to be an effective, engaged parent and why giving children space to solve their own problems enables self-regulation and self-confidence. REGISTER TO ATTEND

No Dogs on Campus
Please do not bring your dogs to campus. This is a school policy and signs are posted. We have had a significant problem with dog waste on our fields and campus and it is impacting our PE and recess programs. It is also important to provide a safe environment for those with allergies and animal fears.
