Hello Addison Family,
This program is available for free to any Addison parents who would like to attend, please sign up asap as space is limited. Please note the location is Hoover Elementary School but Addison families are welcome to attend.
This is the much talked about workshop that helps adults learn the ways and tools to strengthen relationships with youth of all ages. This is a free program (a small donation towards the materials provided, is totally an option).
Please encourage parents in your school site to sign up as early as possible, as spots are limited. I cannot recommend this workshop enough, having attended one a few years back. To say that it has been immensely beneficial, is saying it mildly.
Below is the content and flyer that you can use to post in your respective site networks.
The Palo Alto Unified School District is offering a free series of parent meetings open to all parents and caregivers.
