Parent Workshops and Presentations
Parent education is part of the total experience at The Parish School. We believe that parent education is essential to the growth and development of every child. Parents are required to attend a minimum of two parent educations sessions and two social events throughout the year and are highly encouraged to participate in more as your schedule permits.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Regularly scheduled parent education meetings
- Classroom observations
- Viewing an educational DVD
- Reading a resource book from the Parish parent library
- Participating in parent counseling sessions
- Serve as a PTO Chair; contact firstname.lastname@example.org for open positions
Daytime parent education sessions are divided into topics relevant to early childhood and elementary families. Children/siblings may not attend these sessions in respect for the speaker. Evening sessions cover topics related to our general parent population and free childcare is provided with RSVP.
Parent Resource Library
Many of our families commute to The Parish School from all over the greater Houston area and may be unable to attend sessions in person. For our parents’ convenience, The Parish School has a Parent Resource Library located inside the administration building full of books and DVDs for self-study that can be checked out at the front desk and counted toward Parent Education credits. Resources are limited and items are checked-out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
