The SHM School Counseling Department hosts Parent Coffees periodically throughout the year. Parent Coffees are parent information sessions, on a variety of different topics. They are informal gatherings, usually with a guest speaker who presents on a particular topic. We typically conclude with questions and discussions with the speaker and attendees. Light refreshments are served during each Parent Coffee.

November Parent Coffee: For
many families, the high cost of higher education is a daunting proposition.
Parents lie awake at night trying to figure out how to afford sending their

to retire. Some families have children attending college next year and others
have years to plan; but the fears of tackling these monumental and rising costs
are the same. The College Funding Coach® is here to help families
figure out HOW to pay for it! Please join us on November 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm for the Little-Known
Secrets of Paying for College workshop. This is information you can’t
