Why a Family Information/Game Night?

Navigating The Middle School Years Builds Community And Helps Everyone To Thrive

  • Middle school can be challenging for the whole famly and working/dicussing together bulids solidarity​​​​.
  • Realizing there are other parents/students having the same experiences is refreshing.
  • Learning about the ins and outs of MBMS in a social enviornment is both helpful and fun.

Board Games Give You The Face-to-Face Connection We So Desperately Need

  • Our busy schedules can prevent us from spending quality time with our friends and family. 
  • When we don't get enough social engagement, issues arise in our perceptions of ourselves and the world, engagement in riskier behaviors increases, and even our immune system and heart function can decline.
  • Not only that, the fun and creative environment that we create when we play board games gives way to laughter and excitement, which produces endorphins and which can ward off mental illnesses such as depression.
