Whatever Happened to Recess?
(And other questions about the scheduling of Brookline’s school day)
Join parents, educators and other members of our community for Peter Gray’s presentation, “Play Deficit Disorder: A National Crisis and How to Solve it Locally,” to be followed by a panel discussion about how best to balance play and learning in the school day.
Wednesday, November 1, 6–8 p.m.
Hunneman Hall, Brookline Library, Main Branch
Light supper at 6 p.m., program at 6:30 p.m.
Dr. Peter Gray teaches at Boston College and is the author of Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life.
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email email@example.com to get involved.
