Community Notebook: Teen panel to talk about parents, school

Paly senior organizes parent-education event

Parents seeking to better understand their teenage children can listen to a panel of Palo Alto High School seniors speak Thursday night at an event aptly called "What Your Teen Wants You To Know But Can't Tell You."

The high schoolers will talk about interpersonal relationships, parent involvement, post-high school plans, self-care and other topics, according to an event description. The event is being organized by Cezanne Lane, Paly's school climate and social justice commissioner and the founder of the school's climate and wellness committee.

"The panel will be interactive and parents will have an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences while also hearing students' experiences," Lane wrote in an email to the Weekly.

Parents of any grade are welcome and encouraged to attend. They will be able to ask the students questions directly.

The panel is free and will run from 7-9 p.m. at Paly's Media Arts Center, 50 Embarcadero Road. To register, go to
