Parent University a Success

 

On September 13, 2011, Carmel Elementary School hosted their first Parent University program. The program was designed to appeal to elementary school parents of all social backgrounds and educational status understanding that parenting, like other types of education, is an ongoing and lifelong learning process.  The faculty and administration value the importance of working together with parents and guardians to achieve success for each and every student.  Principal Keith Bryant said, "I am very pleased with the response we have received from our parents and faculty.  We hope these workshops give parents some additional tools to help their students achieve their personal best."  Parents were able to attend three thirty-minute sessions of their choice and Carmel provided free child care, pizza for both parents and students, cookies, and drinks to those attending. 

Almost 100 parents attending the first Parent University and took classes such as How to Help Your Child Become an Independent Reader, Success Maker- What Is It and How Does It Help My Child, Homework - Help, What Is The Big Deal With the GCRCT, and How Can I Get My Child Organized For School.  These workshops were proudly taught by Carmel Elementary School's faculty.

Carmel plans to offer additional Parent University workshops throughout the school year and expects increased participation in the future.  For additional information, please contact Carmel faculty member, Dr. Kimball at Reginald.Kimball@cherokee.k12.ga.us who will be coordinating future Parent University programs.
