It's Back to School time for parents at Parent University 2015
For eight years, the Parent University Conference has helped parents start the school year right with workshops, health screenings and community services. Families work with educators and district employees to learn how to be more involved in their child’s education and how best to support them in their academics.
There are also chances to win door prizes and get free school clothes and supplies. Plus, there will be free breakfast and lunch, as well as free childcare of parents who pre-register!
This year, we are honored to welcome Tennessee Commissioner of Education Dr. Candice McQueen to speak with parents about what they can expect from their kids' education now and in the coming years.
It's always a terrific event, one that brings together parents, teachers and city leaders to talk about how we can all work together to help kids. Here's what parents have to say about it:
"I’ve learned so much information and gotten lots of help. I really like how I am able to get information that I might not have gotten at other places and am able to actually speak with service providers.” – MNPS Parent
“I feel better about sending my children to a public high school. I am happy I came and will spread the word to other middle school parents.” – MNPS Parent
Registration is free, and you can get a free ride on an MTA bus if you tell the driver you are going to Parent University. How easy is that?!
