On May 3rd, we will welcome speakers from the Hetrick-Martin Institute to run a workshop about gender identity for BSGE parents and guardians.
To this generation, gender expression and pronoun usage is critical to developing adolescents. One of the central goals of the workshop is to help parents communicate with their children around these themes.
Please join us for this event on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 pm.
Graduating seniors will formally present their CAS projects for 10th and 11th graders and their families as well as the greater BSGE community throughout the building, answering questions about this engaging IB requirement. It is the perfect opportunity to spark ideas and enthusiasm for possible future CAS projects while having questions about the CAS requirement answered. All 10th and 11th graders are expected to attend along with a parent or guardian.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you there.
