Parents: Don’t you wish you could sometimes compare notes and stories with other parents in your child’s grade – or gather some accumulated wisdom for parents who have already walked the path you’re on, been through all the ups and downs of parenting a high school student, just to know that you aren’t really the “only parent who acts that way?”

Join the Parent Association tonight at 6:30pm in A219 for Parent “Know and Tell” – Shared Wisdom about the Adolescents We Know and Love. As always, light refreshments will be served and there will be a report from a school administrator. Contact the Parent Association co-chairs Jackie Schluter-Johnson or Luann Mishler.
