Introducing the Mullen Wellness Series
The goal of this program is to provide our parents with opportunities to grow in understanding of the challenges adolescents face daily. Through a series of relevant informational gatherings our parents and students will both become better informed and will see each other as resources for the ongoing parenting challenges they face in the 21st Century.
Mullen will host these evening gatherings throughout the academic year. The evening will be facilitated by the Pastoral Office and Guidance Department and is free to all participants.
