Westerville City School District is set to host its enlightening Parent Prep workshop series, aimed at empowering parents and caregivers with vital information and skills. This educational initiative presents a golden opportunity for adults to engage in learning and discussion on a range of crucial topics. Scheduled for February 10 at Minerva Park Middle School, the series offers a diverse array of sessions, each tailored to the unique challenges and responsibilities of parenting in today’s world.
Engaging and Informative Sessions
The workshop series boasts over 40 sessions, each focusing on topics crucial to contemporary parenting. These include mindful parenting, digital safety, conflict resolution, substance education, and college and career readiness. Such a wide range of subjects ensures that every participant can find sessions that resonate with their personal parenting journey. Given the nature of the topics discussed, the sessions are exclusively for adults, ensuring an environment conducive to open and mature discussion.
Participants can access the full list of sessions, including their times and locations, through the event page. This flexibility in choosing sessions allows parents and caregivers to tailor their experience to their specific interests and needs. It’s important to note that these sessions are adult-only due to the sensitivity of the topics discussed.
Support and Organization
The district’s Student Well-Being and Mental Health team, renowned for their commitment to holistic educational experiences, organizes the event. The series is generously sponsored by the Westerville Education Challenge and supported by the Westerville Parent Council, reflecting a community-wide dedication to the welfare and education of families.
There is no need for pre-registration, making it convenient for busy parents and caregivers. Attendees are encouraged to participate in as many or as few sessions as they wish. Light concessions will be available for purchase, adding to the comfort of the day. However, attendees should note that childcare is not provided, emphasizing the adult-focused nature of the sessions.
Those unable to attend the February event will have a second opportunity on March 9, 2024, at Westerville Central High School. This continued commitment to parent education underlines the district’s dedication to supporting families in every possible way.
