    First Parent University of the Year Draws 100-plus Attendees

    Peoria Public Schools will hold its first Parent University meeting Thursday, Sept. 18, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Kellar Primary School, 6413 N. Mt. Hawley Rd. The evening will include free dinner and free child care provided by Manual Academy Health Occupations students. Reservations are not required. “Parent University is a program created to help parents become stronger educators,” adds Taunya Jenkins, District Family and Community Coordinator. The keynote presentation, by a representative of the Center for the Prevention of Abuse, will focus on Erin’s Law, which requires that all Illinois public schools implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program. Following the main presentation, parents can choose to attend break-out sessions in three of five areas: curriculum, assisting students in the classroom, health and fitness, parenting and community services. Each evening will include three 35-minute break-out sessions. Sessions on Thursday will include: Technology: Apps for Parents by Susan Gobeyn, Mathematics and Science Coordinator, which will offer an overview of the technology students use, both academically and otherwise, and how parents can make appropriate technology choices for their children. Another session, presented by a representative of Sylvan Learning Center, will give parents information on how to identify different learning styles and how learning styles can impact student’s academic performance.
