Parent Up Distinguished Speaker Series

Save The Dates

We are proud to announce our lineup for the sixth season of the Parent Up Distinguished Speaker Series. This year's theme, “Developing Leadership,” examines a core principle of our school’s mission through various lenses. What do leadership, power and influence look like in today’s world? How will our children’s experiences challenge and step into these new forms of leadership? And, how might we become better leaders in our everyday lives? Join us for thought-provoking and inspiring discussions by some of today's most innovative minds.
