Returning Parents to Class

The school district is offering a seven-week program for parents of young children, 5 to 10, beginning Wednesday, March 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Susi Q Community Center, 380 Third St.

Therapist Laura Rivas will teach the class, “Loving Solutions.”

“We are so excited to be able to offer parent education in town for our elementary parents,” said elementary school counselor Jami Parsons, who described the course as part of an evidenced based K-12 parent education curriculum utilized by neighboring communities with great success.

“Parenting is very difficult in today’s day and age and there is no instructional manual for raising children,” said El Morro Principal Chris Duddy. “Parent education is so important and often overlooked.”
