New Temporary Business and Student Services Offices in October
The SMUHSD is saying “farewell” to its antiquated, over crowded facility and trailers, and saying “hello” to a state-of-the-art District Office scheduled to open in the fall of 2018. To make room for construction, Business Services and Student Services will be located in a temporary facility at 839 Hinckley in Burlingame starting in October. Business Services will relocate on October 7th. Student Services, including Special Education, will relocate October 22nd. See the flyer with complete details.

Dr. Dan Siegel
Discover the Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain!
Internationally acclaimed author and UCLA psychiatrist, Dr. Daniel Siegel, will share the exciting neuroscience behind the heightened social, emotional and creative energy that drives adolescent behavior. Dispelling myths of raging hormones and immaturity, he explains how crucial changes in the brain prepare us to thrive as interdependent adults. Dr. Siegel teaches us how to harness these changes to help our adolescents navigate a happy, stable transition to adulthood. He offers strategies to enhance self-awareness, support family connections and reduce vulnerability to risks. Whether you are in the midst of navigating the teenage years or preparing for the next chapter in the life of you and your elementary or middle school child, this evening will be both eye opening and deeply engaging! Dr. Siegel’s bestselling books include Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain, The Whole-Brain Child, Mindsight and his newly released Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human.
