Parents Book Club

Parents, are you looking for a good read over the winter break? The PTA will host two book club meetings this spring. The first will discuss Untangled: Guiding Teenage Girls Through the Seven Transitions into Adulthood by Lisa Damour. Our second bookclub meeting will discuss Masterminds and Wingmen by Rosalind Wiseman.

We'll meet at A Second Cup in the evening, and keep an eye out for dates and times.
