    Middle School Conversation Circle Meeting

    Parents, educators, community members – come join the conversation!!

    Registration is required.  For more information or to register to join the Conversation Circle, click here.

    Meeting monthly throughout the 2019-20 school year at the Barrington Area Library, each Conversation Circle will consist of parents, caregivers, educators, and community members from the Barrington area and two mental health professionals who will provide support, guidance, and expertise to group members.  In order to meet the unique needs of children and youth at different developmental stages, BStrong Together has created Conversation Circles to focus on specific age groups – elementary school, middle school, and high school.

    The supportive learning environment of the Conversation Circle will provide information, tools, resources, and strategies from the knowledge and experience of the facilitators combined with the perspective and support that comes from the connection to other members.  Together, the group will discuss ways to prepare children and youth to successfully navigate the complex world of today and the future.  

    In order to strengthen the connections between members of the Conversation Circle as well as maximize the learning experience, member attendance at each monthly meeting is encouraged, but is not required.

    * Space is limited.  Registration is required to join a Conversation Circle. 

    ** Participants in the BStrong Together Conversation Circles must reside or work within the geographic boundaries of Barrington 220 School District, but a connection to the District is not required.
