Cannon School invites parents to learn tips for beating stress
CONCORD — Educators and parents at Cannon School began a six-part conversation earlier this year about the foundation that acheiving balance provides families in learning and living.
Each of the school’s six Parent Education Program (PEP) events focuses on helping children grow and thrive as they meet the challenges of the future and work to achieve their true potential throughout a lifetime of learning.
On Thursday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m., Cannon School will invite the public to join that conversation as it welcomes to campus Kirk Martin, an expert on beating stress whose insights have appeared in the Washington Post, USA Today and Parade Magazine and on TV and radio.
Martin will share with parents ways they and their children can find the power within to beat stress and anxiety. The event is free and open to the public. No RSVP or tickets are necessary. While Martin will speak about issues of interest to families, this event is open only to parents.
“We hope that Kirk Martin’s strategies to help children succeed at school and at home will have a powerful impact on families, especially during these challenging times,” said Matt Rush, head of middle school.
Martin’s presentation is one part of his two-day visit to Cannon School. He will also give a workshop for teachers, observe classes and lead assemblies for all Cannon students. Learn more about Martin at www.celebratecalm.com.
