NCHS PFA & NC Cares Joint Meeting

A Parent's Guide to Modern Teen Dating: Part Two

Wednesday, March 15 | 9:30 AM

Please join New Canaan CARES and the NCHS PFA as we welcome back Emma Kate Freatman, LPC, Silver Hill Hospital, and welcome Officer Jeff Deak, NCPD and NCHS Resource Officer, to discuss modern teen dating. We will address adolescent strengths and weaknesses when it comes to navigating teenage relationships, how we can support our children during this critical developmental stage, and important legal information we need to know. If you missed “A Parent's Guide To Modern Teen Dating 1.0” last year, or would like a refresher of what was discussed, you can watch the video HERE


Save the Date for CAREER NIGHT!
Wednesday, March 22 | 6:45 PM

The PFA and the NCHS Counseling Department are excited to announce the return of Career Night! This traditionally biennial event was last held in 2019 due to the pandemic. 

Career Night offers all NCHS students the opportunity to hear from successful professionals and entrepreneurs working in a variety of industries and careers. The information students learn at Career Night may inspire brand new academic interests or reinforce existing ones. Either way, it's sure to be an invaluable evening that your student won't want to miss, particularly our juniors who won’t get another chance to participate before they graduate!

Details will be posted on our website as they’re confirmed.
