Summer time is not "down time" around Parents' Academy! We are plotting, planning and setting new directions for the coming year. Our first season of "Positive Discipline Toolbox" wrapped earlier this month with a total of 70 parents participating in our program.
We had a lovely "wrap party" on June 24 at Conception Park and braved the rain with food, families and fun. We missed out on the free admission to the swimming pool due to rain, but we did all get splashed! Watch for details coming in August about a "back to school picnic" sponsored by our Family Success Team.
Monthly support group meetings have had lively discussions on all kinds of topics relating to families, life, relationships and parenting. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, Aug. 2, from 6 to 8 pm. Taking in to account all the feedback from Parents' Academy graduates, we are adding a "Part 2" to Positive Discipline Toolbox and have expanded the original course from 8 to 10 weeks for the coming year.
If you know someone who would benefit from the "Positive Discipline Toolbox" workshop, we just opened registration for the first cycle that will begin August 15th. Go to www.parentsacademysa.org to register. The class will fill up quickly, so jump in while there is still room!
New courses under development that will roll out this fall are "Baby Bundle" and "Toddler Time" for families with little ones. We are also working on a program that parents and children will attend together. Watch for an announcement sent to Positive Discipline Graduates regarding the "part 2" class....we will keep you posted!
