PSP INTRO TO MIDDLE SCHOOL with Joyce Szuflita @ 7:00pm

This talk will be done on Zoom Webinars.

The middle school application process is famously horrible. 

It's your first real step into choice at a time when you are also beginning to worry about sex, drugs, and rock & roll.

Joyce Szuflita is here to talk you down and untangle the spaghetti of choices (district, borough-wide and city-wide, school based applications and charters). 

She will also explain how it is a different kind of place than elementary. There is a reason that they stopped calling it "Junior High School". You may also feel that this is the start of the slippery slope to High School, but it is actually a great time to practice and make mistakes. 

This talk is general information and sound advice. Joyce won't be talking about specific schools so it doesn't matter what district you live in.

Here's what one parent had to say about Joyce Szuflita's Middle School talks:

"...I was so impressed - I laughed, I cried :) - I left feeling not only informed but mentored and coached from one parent to another - I truly appreciate the work you do, the energy you do it with and the humor you bring to the table to keep us all sane." 

Tickets are $20/member family. If you are experiencing financial hardship, please email:
