Town School for Boys
Yale psychologist Dr. Laurie Santos, an expert on human cognition, will provide advice on how to engage our uniquely human facilities to counteract evolution, choose more wisely, and live happier lives. Admission is free for CAIS parents and teachers. Please note that attendees will need to bring photo ID. This event is presented by SPEAK, a coalition of San Francisco K-8 schools that have joined together to enhance parent education.
CAIS Parent Representatives
Michelle Kemper Verplaetse and Stephanie Reynaga serve as CAIS parent representatives for the group.
SPEAK pools resources among CAIS and other member schools. Its volunteer board members (typically 2 per school) plan, organize and hold exciting and timely parent education events. Usually this is a talk given by an expert in the field who has recently published a relevant book. Sometimes, it’s a panel discussion around a topic of interest or a screening of a relevant film.
All SPEAK events are free for CAIS parents.
