Preparing eighth graders for high school

Moving from middle school to high school is a big step for eighth graders. To help parents prepare their children for this big move, Wilton Youth Council’s Project 2020 and the Wilton High School PTSA will host a free presentation for parents of eighth graders on Wednesday, April 27, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Wilton High School Little Theater.

Parents will learn how to provide social and emotional support to their children as they transition to high school. The program will begin with a presentation on adolescent brain development by Liz Jorgensen, an adolescent counseling expert.

Following the presentation there will be a question-and-answer session with panelists. The panelists will include a Wilton High School social worker, Wilton High School and Middlebrook School counselors, and Wilton High School parents and students.  

No registration is required. For more information, call the Middlebrook School Counseling Department at 203-762-8388.
