college 101 parent panel

Helping your teen navigate the path to adulthood can be very stressful. How do you know when to step in? What is your role in helping them decide their future? Is college the right path? What other options do they have?

A panel of Ellington parents who have experienced the process will share their experience and knowledge about this transition. 

Rise Above Student Leadership Group will be hosting a "College Night" in another room at the same time with a panel of college students sharing their experiences.

All parents welcome! Free Admission! Refreshments served!
