Charlottesville City Schools will offer a second evening of Parent University to city elementary families on March 14 at Greenbrier Elementary from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
“We are always trying to find creative ways to further connect families with resources and updates about our curricular work,” said Charlottesville City Schools Family Engagement Facilitator Velvet Coleman. “Parent University will give families an opportunity to learn more about what is happening in the classrooms in areas such as math, literacy, social emotional education and special education.”
Free and open to all preschool through fourth grade families whose children attend Charlottesville City Schools, the event will include workshops, encourage questions from families, and provide take-home materials. Additionally, the school division is providing dinner, childcare, and transportation for participants. Assistance and translation services will also be offered to attendees who have limited English.
“Because we serve such a diverse population, accessibility is important to us as we seek ways to serve all our students well,” said Coleman. “We want to make it as easy as possible for families to be able to get the support they need to help their children reach their full potential.”
A variety of community vendors will be present, including the Piedmont Family YMCA, ReadyKids, Region Ten, UVA Children’s Fitness, and Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital.
We hope to see you at Parent University on March 14! Please remember to RSVP.
