Parent Event

Last year the entire WPS faculty was able to hear Dr. Steiner-Adair, Clinical and Consulting Psychologist and Research Associate at Harvard Medical School and author of the award winning book, The Big Disconnect: Protecting Childhood and Family, speak on the impact of technology in our daily lives.  On Tuesday, January 9th, 2018, Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair will visit with our  Fiske 5th grade students to discuss  how technology  impacts our social and emotional wellness.

Dr. Steiner-Adair will also be holding a PreK-5 parent session on the evening of Wednesday, January 10th, 2018  from 6:30pm-8:30pm in the WMS Auditorium. (Our snow date for this event is Thursday, January 11th, 2018.)  At this event,  she will share her observations from the 5th Grade sessions and offer strategies for helping our elementary students. Please see the two attached documents regarding Dr. Steiner-Adair’s visit.
