Parent Academic Round Tables

In order to build community between students, staff, families and the community, the National Honor Society hosts Academic Round Tables. The students select topics that are of interest to them and plan and host the evening. The event begins with dinner and a keynote address, continues with small group table discussion led by students, and concludes with a sharing / report out of what the groups discussed. The evenings are very powerful and truly serve as a bridge-building activity.
