PARENTWISER (formerly Parent Education)
1. Thank you to those able to help during Jessica Lahey’s talks on April 25th! Thanks to the many Presidents who stepped in, we ended up with sufficient volunteers making both day and evening events flow easily. Thank you!!!
2. New Topics – Based on results from our March district-wide survey, we are currently planning speakers for next year. The topics that emerged are:
1) Managing screen time
2) Managing academic/friendship stress
3) Parenting tweens & teens (grades 6-12)
4) Managing behavior challenges (in grades K-8)
5) Sibling Rivalry
Targeting these areas, we are considering a similar model to current year with 1 film documentary/panel discussion, and 3 additional speakers, including 1 national keynote speaker. Speakers and dates will be available in September.
3. Quarterly ParentWiser Committee Meeting
will be via email this spring; please send any parent ed suggestions/comments for continual improvement to email@example.com
. Please keep a parent ed rep on your PTA/PTSA roster as the local voice for parent ed at your school, and encourage them to participate in ParentWiser events as volunteers and idea generators. They can also contact us for local speaker suggestions to draw attendance to your General Membership Meetings.
4. Back-to-School PTSA Check-In.
When creating your online membership/registration for back-to-school check-in, please add the following question/field, and then send your list of emails accumulated to firstname.lastname@example.org
“Add me to the monthly ParentWiser email distribution to learn about district-wide parent ed events (enter email here) “
5. ENEWS announcement for May/June. (This was also sent directly to all parent ed reps and communication chairs.)
ParentWiser invites you to…
…because parenting continues even when school ends.
Thank you !
