In an ever-changing world, it becomes more vital than ever for our children to develop and internalize qualities of empathy, cooperation, respect, and collaboration, so we purposely and thoughtfully build into our program opportunities for students to build and practice these skills.
As Turning Point educators, we have experienced many opportunities for "teachable moments" to help students process what they are hearing from the media, parents, and friends during this election season.
If you are the parent of a preteen or early adolescent, you may find yourself wondering what is going on with your child, or more specifically, what is going on in your child's brain.
It is hard to believe that I have only "officially" been part of the Turning Point community for a little over three months. The warmth and generosity I have experienced, both as a parent and as a Head of School, has made me feel so welcomed, appreciated, and included.
Please join me for the first event in our Parent Speaker Series, "Positive Communication with Children," next Wednesday, October 19, from 8:30-10:00 am, with Sheri Glucoft Wong, LCSW.
Turning Point School was recently recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a California Green Ribbon School (bronze category). Our sustainability programs, such as Dirt to Dish, composting, No Waste Lunches, service learning trips, and the Carpool Challenge make Turning Point stand out among our peer schools.
