This year will have many opportunities for Parent Education.  We will be posting events and meetings as we receive information about them. If you have any ideas for the year, a seminar or workshop to host, please contact the Parent Education Director. In the past, we have hosted Love and Logic, Kids and Computer Safety, Food Allergies, and we are open to new ideas.
