Our first meeting titled “Executive Functioning & School Success” will be on Monday, September 23rd, 2013 from 7:00-8:30pm at Walter R. Sundling Junior High School, 1100 N. Smith Street, Palatine, IL 60067. (A flier with the monthly calendar will be available soon.)
At this meeting, Michael Gladstein, author of SQ Write, will further explain Executive Functioning as the ability to engage in purposeful, organized, strategic, self-regulated, and goal-directed behaviors. We will discuss EF’s relationship on student achievement regarding written expression, study skills, and school success.

Supporting your PTA has never been easier!
We have successfully offered a direct donation program the past few years that has been highly supported by our WRS parents. In this fast-paced age where it’s hard to find extra time between work and your student’s activities, parents are looking for a simplified way to offer assistance.
