PTA Meeting in Queens March 11: Encouraging Teens to Venture Outside the Box

Please join us on Wednesday, March 11, for Hunter's annual PTA Meeting in Flushing, Queens.  The focus of the meeting this month will be "Risks and rewards: why students should venture outside the box," a Q&A with Principal Tony Fisher and guest speaker Kimberly Chu, a school consultant and a faculty member at the NYU School of Medicine's Institute for Psychoanalytic Education. There will be a free shuttle leaving from Hunter at 6 pm (RSVP required) and returning after the meeting ends at 9 pm. For more information on the presentation, the Queens location, reserving your spot on the shuttle, and more, read on.

Hunter students and their families have high expectations and big goals. Chu and Fisher will discuss and answer parents' questions about the value of reaching beyond what's conventional for high-achieving students.  How do adolescents develop academic and personal strengths by reaching for uncommon goals? In addition to her teaching at the institute, Chu has also been a lecturer and clinical supervisor at Mount Sinai Medical Center's Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  She teaches about diversity issues and specializes in a number of areas related to identity, development, and challenges in childhood and adolescence. For more information, contact PTA Programming Chair Hayley Gorenberg at .
