Parent Education Opportunities 

Earlier this week, District 39 hosted the second part of its three-part series titled “Being An Ally: Supporting Inclusivity and Approaching Difficult Conversations at Home.” A recording of that event is available now. 

The third part of this series will be an in-person, evening event on Wednesday, April 12 (7 pm) featuring Kelly Jackson, Highcrest Middle School Principal and District 39 Administrator for Social-Emotional Learning and Family Engagement, leading a book study and discussion. Please see the linked flyer for more information on the event as well as information on the two books that will be the focal point of the discussion. Be sure to visit our D39 Parent Education webpage to learn more about our parent education program and find recordings of past presentations. 

Earlier this month, the Family Action Network (FAN) welcomed Lisa Damour, Ph.D. for a presentation titled “The Emotional Lives of Teenagers.” A recording of this event is available through the end of the month. More information on upcoming FAN events can be found on their website.
