Dr. Kathleen Van Antwerp & Senta Greene of Full Circle Consulting Systems, Inc., will provide a series of Parent and Student Leadership Cafes
for Notre Dame High School under the firm’s S.T.O.P (Students, Teachers, Officers, and Parents together) model. Participants will engage in an educational and multicultural approach to adolescent development, adolescent behavioral health, effective intervention and family engagement. The Cafes will include developing reflective practice and cultural humility. Parent Cafes will be held once a month in the evening and Student Leadership Cafes will be held once a month in the afternoon after classes. In addition, the facilitators will be in monthly communication with the administration to effectively communicate development and progress stemming from Parent and Student Leadership Cafes. They are also working with our faculty this Fall through a Fall Equity Series program. Full Circle's educational model
celebrates a holistic approach to team-building and leadership. Their programs engage the heart, intellect, and connection of participants, and their interactive experiences are engaging and based on the most optimal principles and conditions of adolescent development, adult learning, and high-performance leadership strategies.Parent Leadership Cafes:
