BOXFORD – The Masconomet Regional School District and Superintendent Michael Harvey invite the school community to attend this year’s Masconomet and Tri-Town School Union Parent University and gain valuable insight into their children’s education.
Parent University will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Masconomet Middle/High School, 20 Endicott Road, Boxford.
Parent University presenters will share perspectives on topics including understanding the methods and practices of school curricula, exploring best supports for social emotional learning, creating a community of belonging, and prioritizing parent wellness. These discussions will focus on academics, character education, and preparing students for the journey ahead.
The conference will feature two keynote speakers:
- Internet safety expert Katie Greer will share strategies to empower students, educators and parents to use technology in a healthy and safe way. Greer has served as Director of Internet Safety for the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, and as Intelligence Analyst for the Massachusetts State Police. Her work has been featured in national television and print media.
- Social worker Rick Irving will talk about how the school community can recover and regain confidence with a sense of joy. Irving has worked as a clinical social worker for more than 40 years in both private treatment settings and public education. Irving has consulted with school districts and presented to workshops both in the United States and Europe.
“Families and caregivers of students of all ages will benefit from Parent University,” Superintendent Harvey said. “We hope that attendees will leave with a better understanding about educational challenges, and be able to talk to their children about important skills that will point them toward success.”
On-site childcare will be available.
Those interested in attending are asked to register here.
