At ParentNet meetings, which are held at the school from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. a few times a year, parents of children in the same grade level meet up for meaningful conversation about their kids and parenting. Topics are chosen by the parents, and parents lead the discussions.
ParentNet meetings are fun and social, but also structured. They are led by a parent volunteer who helps guide and facilitate the discussion, and a faculty liaison attends in case parents have school-related questions or issues that should be addressed. If you’re familiar with PEPS or had your kids in a cooperative-style preschool, a ParentNet meeting will seem very familiar.
One of the things I like best about ParentNet is that the evening meetings seem to work especially well for working dads and moms (like me! and there is childcare!)
The first ParentNet meetings for First Grade and Kindergarten parents will be held Tuesday, March 11 and Tuesday, May 6 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at the school’s main (brick) building.
