Parent Education is Powerful!
The goal of the SRVCPTA Parent & Community Concerns Committee is to support parents, guardians and family caregivers by strengthening and teaching parenting skills and encouraging involvement in schools and at home; supporting the understanding of childhood development stages; providing resource materials; and networking with agencies and groups focusing on parent involvement. To that end, most of our PTA and PTSA units (schools) have Parent & Community Services Representatives who organize parent education events. Some of these parent education events are targeted for a specific school while others are open to the entire district.
In essence, we provide parent education that strives to help our children, families and community thrive! You can be an essential part of that process by sharing parent education ideas and/or attending parent education events which are advertised on school websites, in school newsletters and on Peach Jar fliers.
Have a Parent Education Topic and/or Speaker Idea?
If you have an idea for a parent education topic and/or speaker, please share it with your PTA/PTSA Parent & Community Concerns Representative for consideration. You can often find their name and contact information on your PTA/PTSA website. You are also welcome to share any ideas with the SRVCPTA VP of Parent & Community Concerns, Heidi Kenniston-Lee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
