Teens Take Charge with Skip Coaching
Monday, September 21 or Wednesday, September 23 @ 7:00 pm
This fall, teens face a hybrid school model and fewer extracurricular activities. This can be a blessing and a curse. Without a strict schedule, the day can feel like a big gray blob making it difficult for students to take charge and be independent. In this environment, executive function skills are critical for teens’ success. Skip Coaching’s Teens Take Charge program provides insights for how to plan, prioritize, manage time, and take responsibility.
Join us for one of these sessions via Zoom.  There will be time for Q&A after the presentation.

Mamaroneck Book Club Reads New York via Zoom
Sep 23 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The Dakota Winters, by Tom Barbash

The Dakota Winters is an evocative and wildly absorbing novel about the Winters, a family living in New York City’s famed Dakota apartment building in the year leading up to John Lennon’s assassination. By turns hilarious and poignant, The Dakota Winters is a family saga, a page-turning social novel, and a tale of a critical moment in the history of New York City and the country at large.

All are invited to join The Mamaroneck and At Home on the Sound Book club as we continue our year of New York reads!
