Marydee Sklar Classes at West Hills

Marydee Sklar is returning to West Hills this spring to teach her Executive Functioning Course to our interested families. This class may especially be of interest to parents if your child struggles with any one of the following: lack of focus, late assignments, difficulty managing multiple tasks or completing tasks, or needs multiple reminders.
The Introductory Class is on Tuesday, March 12, from 7:00-8:15pm in the 7th/8th grade large classroom. This class is a “stand-alone class,” and open to any parent curious about organizational skills and the “thinking” behind it. The cost for West Hills families is $10 per family.
The 7-Week Tuesday Night Class runs from April 2 - May 14, from 7:00-8:30pm in the science lab. The cost for West Hills families is $250 for one parent and one child. Additional family members are $20 each.
Marydee does require a minimum of eight full paying families in order to conduct the class. For more information and to register online, click here to visit her website.
