Wake Up Wednesday
Tweens and Puberty
Wednesday, December 11th
8:15 a.m.

Puberty can be exciting, awkward and confusing for children and parents alike. The goal of this workshop is to help parents discuss puberty, adolescence and sex with their children in a natural and conversational way.   Dr. Aletha Akers will join us for the third year to lead a discussion on best practices for encouraging dialogue with the tween/young adult.

Dr. Akers is an adolescent gynecologist and medical director of Adolescent Gynecology Consultative Services in the Craig-Dalsimer Division of Adolescent Medicine at CHOP. She is a faculty member of CHOP's Policylab and an expert in pediatric and adolescent gynecology, having conducted studies on how best to help parents to talk with their children about sex, how to encourage adolescents to wait before having sex and how to reduce pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection rates in teens.

Counselor Corner

At the beginning of each school year, our 8th graders are faced with the challenging task of completing their schoolwork while simultaneously engaging in the high school application process. We would like to congratulate our 8th grade students and families for getting past the initial phase of this hurdle! It is truly an accomplishment and we are so proud of them. Applicants (to both high schools and middle schools) will receive decision notifications via the online portal on January 10th. Students must make their selections by January 21, 2020. We wish our students and families the best of luck as they navigate the remainder of this process. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
