Parent University Programs in Mount Vernon
Mount Vernon City School District
For Mount Vernon City Schools, we design and run Parent University programming, which focuses on increasing and improving the relationship between the school and the parents by inviting them in on Saturdays and show them what their children were learning in the classroom for ELA, Math and Science. Each Parent University is a series of six workshops and events held on Saturday mornings, during which parents find out about ways to help their children with math, reading, and homework, plus get new ideas for improving their families’ health and wellness. Parent University also holds a Community Resource Fair, parent/child yoga and meditation class, healthy cooking demos, and Family Fun Day carnivals for the whole family with a DJ, games, inflatable slides, and giveaways like free bike helmets.
