A unique and free event will be held in the Neenah Joint School District to connect elementary school parents with professionals from various local services and organizations.
Parents of Neenah elementary students are invited to attend the third annual “Parents Connect Convention,” which will be held on Tues., Oct. 6 from 5-7:30 p.m. at Horace Mann Middle School. Presenters will cover a wide range of topics and include representatives from a variety of different backgrounds and organizations.
Registration is available through the Parents Connect Convention link on the front page of the District website.
The purpose of the convention is to respond to the needs of families and connect them with professionals who can provide information, support, and resources necessary to encourage their child’s success. The event also aims to strengthen families through education, and foster relationships within the community.
Each participant will have the opportunity to attend two sessions. The sessions include a review of the Love and Logic program, a discussion about safe and secure schools, an open forum where educators from around the District will answer questions and offer advice, an overview of how our brains work and what causes student breakdowns, an introduction to the Schoology technology software and a financial planning and budgeting discussion.
Dinner will be provided and free child care is available for children ages two years old through fifth grade.
