Love & Logic approach workshops
Since inception, Aspen Academy has been committed to the Love & Logic® parenting program, based on the best-selling book: Parenting with Love & Logic. This approach is built around the science of caring and respectful relations. An authentic, loving connection between parents (and caregivers) and their children forms the foundation of good behavior and health decision-making. Each teacher and staff member will renew their certification before the school year begins and we ask you to do the same. This parenting course is essential to the success of our partnership at Aspen Academy which ultimately impacts each of our students and their learning trajectory.
For your convenience, Aspen Academy has scheduled several opportunities (both on campus and via Zoom) to learn side-by-side with fellow parents. Follow this link to register "Mindful Parenting" workshops facilitated by Barry Ebert. Barry is a long-time friend and partner of Aspen Academy, is a certified Love & Logic® facilitator and has been training our teachers and parents for over 10 years. He's one of the best!

Aspen Academy invites all community members to lead themselves first through the challenges of leaning into brave work and tough conversations. This Parent University will continue the meaningful discussions that have ensued through this Spring's Parent Book Club where parents read together Brene' Brown's Dare to Lead; Brave Work, Tough Conversations, Whole Hearts.

How do we cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do we embed the value of courageous vulnerability into our school culture? Parents who have already read and explored deeply this wonderful book are highly encouraged to attend in hopes of more broadly expanding our growth from your prior learning experiences

Parents will have the opportunity to both ask and tackle commonly asked questions surrounding our ongoing efforts to grow as a community in the areas of inclusion, belonging and cultural competence. Parents will be provided a safe and courageous space through breakout rooms to explore common questions, share perspectives, and suggest strategies as partners in this essential community work.

Please join us for our April Parent University where Aspen Academy Director of Elevate, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion shares the many efforts, experiences and opportunities for continued growth.

The Upstanders

Parent Screening + Discussion: Tuesday, FEB 15 @6pm

7th & 8th Grade Screening + Discussion: Wednesday, FEB 15 @8:30am

5th & 6th Grade Screening + Discussion: Thursday, FEB 17 @8:30am (to be rescheduled for week of Feb 22 due to delayed start)

The Upstanders is an iNDIEFLIX Original documentary about resilience, and the power of connection to end bullying.

The Upstanders explores all sides of cyber-bullying, from bully to victim, bystanders and family members. Social media's power means that bullying is now a 24/7 phenomenon, where even changing schools and phone numbers, or deleting accounts cannot stop the cycle. Covid has increased the incidence of cyber-bullying by 70%. Changing human behavior and connection is the key, and this is what the film addresses.

Weaving together personal stories of teenagers and their families, as well as teachers and brain-scientists, The Upstanders shows the importance of empathy and resilience to transforming attitudes and action, and highlights new laws and established programs that are already reducing bullying in schools and communities. It shows that everyone is needed to eradicate cyber-bullying, and gives bystanders the confidence and tools to become 'Upstanders', and help change the narrative.

(Event is free)

Psychologist Ali Schroer will present this session. There is a distinct connection between the developmental expectations and emotional regulation of children. When parents and caregivers have expectations of children that align with their cognitive and biological age, self-regulation is easier to achieve and sustain. This presentation will breakdown developmental expectations for young children and also provide attendees with hands-on tools for caregivers to model and support emotional regulation.
