MORRIS PLAINS MUNICIPAL ALLIANCE TO PRESENT - "NO NEED TO PANIC: HOW TO CREATE A GREAT START TO THE HIGH SCHOOL YEARS"
Making the move from middle school to high school can be a high stress time for teens and parents with a lot of unknowns and new pressures.
This dynamic program will focus on various aspects of the transition from middle school to high school. Parents can expect to see changes in their teens' social and emotional lives, and we will discuss how these changes reflect the ways in which the adolescent's brain is developing. You will also learn ways to make this a time of positive growth for teens, and an exciting and satisfying time for them and their families. Every parent needs this!
The Morris Plains Municipal Alliance is hosting this interactive presentation and discussion by Dr. Lisa Greenberg, who has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is a licensed practicing psychologist.
Borough School Library, Wednesday, May 6th, from 7-8:45pm
Light dinner provided at 7pm, presentation begins promptly at 7:30

MORRIS PLAINS MUNICIPAL ALLIANCE TO PRESENT - "FRESHMAN 6: HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR FOR THE 6 MOST CRITICAL WEEKS OF COLLEGE"
Congratulations, the college admissions process is behind you! Now, the real work begins.
A freshman’s most critical transition period occurs during the first six weeks of college – this is known as the FRESHMAN 6.
Several sources suggest that nearly 40% of students who begin college will not complete their education, and according to some college experts, more than half of college students who leave college do so in the first six weeks.
The Morris Plains Municipal Alliance invites you to join local expert Audra Tonero, LPC, LCADC, for a frank and open discussion about ways to combat the Freshman 6. Learn how to reduce these risks (which include alcohol related issues, sexual/physical assault, transition difficulties, etc.) and make wiser and healthier choices that will lead to a smooth transition and a successful college experience.
This program is for high school seniors and their parents. May 5 th at 7:00 pm, MHS Auditorium
Register online http://tinyurl.com/freshman6
Due to the mature nature of this presentation, it is suggested that no one under 17 attend.
OVER 45 DIFFERENT SUMMER PROGRAMS!!!
