Book Discussion Group for Parents of Students in Grades 4-8
David Blake

Middle School Head David Blake is hosting a book discussion series for parents of students in grades 4-8 during the months of April and May. Over the course of seven weeks, the group will be discussing The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family Relationships in the Digital Age by Catherine Steiner-Adair. We’ll roughly cover one chapter per meeting, although parents are welcome to join me for as many (or few) sessions as their schedule permits. Meeting dates are as follows, and a morning (7:45-8:45 am in the MS Conference Room) and evening (6:45-7:45 pm in Yarnall Lobby) option will be offered on each date. To assist in planning for refreshments, please click here to RSVP if you plan to attend some or all of the series. If you are not able to attend in person but wish to receive information about content that was shared in the meetings, please complete this sign-up.
