4th Grade Parents Presentation

4th Grade parents are invited to join us for a special presentation. "Entering the Middle Grade Years: Building on Success" will be held on Thursday, December 9th at 6:30 PM. 


In today’s world, parents face concerns and decisions that previous generations of parents never faced. Our culture exposes children, from a young age, to material and worries that aren’t appropriate for their development. Neighborhoods and communities offer less support to parents, who can feel like salmon swimming upstream as they try to provide appropriate boundaries for their kids. Today, more than ever, parents need solid advice that gives real-life strategies and suggestions, consistent with their faith.

This presentation is appropriate for the parents of third and fourth grade students. It addresses issues that parents at this stage specifically need, such as brain and social development in the middle grades, social changes and “bullying” concerns, the need for homework independence, and smart early choices with technology.

Presenter: Amy Maus, from West County Psychological Services.

Join parents from Christ the King, Mary Queen of Peace, Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Pillar, St. Clement of Rome, and Ste. Genevieve duBois schools as we learn together how to navigate raising children in intermediate grades.

Hosted at Our Lady of Lourdes, 7144 Forsyth Blvd. University City Mo. 63105 Please RSVP by Dec. 7th at:
