Put Our Children 1st
We all want our children to have a bright future - more opportunities than we had and a fair chance to achieve their potential and be successful. Yet, it is increasingly clear that a high school diploma does not necessarily mean that graduates will be prepared for higher education or for the world of work. As parents, we want to know that no matter where we live or what school district, school or classroom our children are in, all students have access to high-quality education and provided the necessary resources to achieve.
Do you want increase your knowledge of how you can help your child become more successful in school? Do you want to increase your parenting skills and awareness? Consider attending the Los Angeles Urban League's Parent Academy classes. Classes begin on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Now accepting parents of children ages "4" and "K-12."
The Parent Academy is a 9-week course curriculum that will increase parental skills, awareness, advocacy and leadership, in addition to providing parents access to information and resources that support the academic success of their children.
