New for the 2011-2012 academic year, our "Blue Plate Special: Family Together Time" program aims to encourage more family dinners and to promote parental engagement as a simple and effective way of reducing risky behaviors among students of all ages. In addition, our Blue Plate Special program will use a variety of in-school presentations as launching pads from which we can promote further discussion at home on a wide variety of topics such as good decision-making, substance abuse, and cyber bullying. By encouraging students and parents to revisit these topics in the privacy and comfort of their own homes, we hope to strengthen our bonds as a school community and reinforce our partnership with all Pingry parents.
Proposed dates for this family dinner program are the weeks of October 2, December 12, February 4, and April 8.
