School Calendar: Several events scheduled for early November

AAPS hosts Families Care Conference

The community is invited to attend the Ann Arbor Public Schools Intervention Specialist third annual Families Care Conference on Thursday, Nov. 2 from 5:30 – 8 p.m.

 
 

The event will include dynamic guest speaker, Dr. Latish Reed who is the Equity Specialist for Milwaukee Public School District. Her focus will be on the “Fierce Urgency of Now.”

Dr. Reed will address the following:

  • structural changes to K-12 federal funding that will weaken public education
  • increased intolerance for diversity in our schools
  • an erosion of guidance to protect our most vulnerable and marginalized students

There will be dinner and collegial conversation on Thursday, Nov. 2 at Scarlett Middle School starting with dinner at 5:30 p.m. followed by the workshop at 6 p.m.

 

Invest in your child’s future without sacrificing yours

Come to learn to define a college saving’s goal that is right for you, take a look at today’s college costs, balance retirement and college savings and understand the difference. This complimentary program will feature Kristin Roy, CFP, CDFA and Tricia Nelson, CFP, APMA.

The program will be held on Monday, Nov. 6 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Community High School.

To register for either, call (734) 887-3702.


College & Transition Services Fair

Ann Arbor Public Schools and Ann Arbor Academy invite you to learn about college and university programs with a special focus on resources available for students with ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, nonverbal learning disabilities and processing challenges. Families will have ample time to talk with college admissions officers, program specialists and providers of supporting care for students transitioning after high school.

The event is Thursday, Nov. 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Huron High School and follows Eton Academy’s yearly “Life After High School” the night before, in Birmingham, Michigan.

This evening differs from other college and career nights because they bring students from throughout southeastern Michigan together with colleges and organizations that provide special resources for students with learning challenges. Each year has seen greater attendance from the Ann Arbor area community as word of this event has spread.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact John Boshoven by email at boshoven@aaps.k12.mi.usor by phone, 734-994-2027 or our Huron High School event host, Robyn Kimmey Watson at watson@aaps.k12.mi.us.
