DARIEN, Conn. – This spring, it’s more than fun and games at The Depot-Darien Youth Center.

Parents will learn what important skills their children need to finish the school year strong and transition into the next grade and/or school with "How to Support Your Students' Study Practice and Keep Your Sanity: 7 Ways Parents Can Help Their Students Succeed" on Thursday from 7-8 p.m. at The Depot.

In this workshop led by Michelle Sagalyn, Successful Study Skills 4 Students’ president, parents of middle and high school students will learn how they can support their child for finals and prepare them for the next school year. The latest in study tools and habits will be discussed, including effective note taking, how to set goals, time management and other skills that can make a difference for students.

“We are excited to partner again with Trackside and offer the parent workshop,” said Sagalyn. “Parents naturally want their children to have every possible competitive advantage, especially as they finish the school year and get ready to enter the next. Implementing even a single new skill has been shown to boost students’ motivation and academic performance.”

The workshop is free but registration is requested. Click here to register .

“We are very happy to offer this valuable presentation to our community. Both parents and students sometimes get both excited and anxious as the school year winds down. This free presentation will help map out a clear and logical path for the conclusion of the school year, and a successful path to start the next,” said Pam Ha-Stevenson, board member of The Depot.

The Depot Youth Center is at 25 Heights Road, Darien.
