RAISING DOERS, a presentation by Mike Lanza Wednesday 2/11

Wednesday, Feb 11th at 7 pm Speaker Mike Lanza presents on 

"Raising Doers"

This talk is for parents who want their children to grow up to be passionate "doers" who make a positive difference in the world.  Mike challenges the common assumption that children must stop playing to develop into productive adults.  On the contrary, doers are highly self-motivated people for whom work is play.  Drawing from his background as the author of the book Playborhood: Turn Your Neighborhood Into a Place for Play, Mike shows how children can connect the dots from a playful childhood to an active, meaningful adulthood. Check out his blog at Playborhood.com.

Free Admission & Free Refreshments starting at 6:30 pm 

PTA Members please join the PTA Board for a brief update and budget addendum vote starting at 6:30 pm in the MPR

For attending parents: Child Care and Pizza for All Toilet-Trained Children in the FCES Library.
