What is Parent University?

Parent University is an evening packed with free educational workshops for grades Pre-kindergarten through Grade 12 that are meant to help you understand what your child is learning in school and provide ways you can support your child at home.

Parent University is sponsored by:

        • Bethel Family-School Partnership Committee
        • Bethel Central PTO
        • Bethel Public Schools

Why should I go?

This is your chance to get inside information from experts who can help your child academically, socially and emotionally.


Feature Workshop: How to Talk Across the Political Divide This workshop will provide skills needed to ensure our debates are fueled with understanding and respect instead of anger and animosity. Don't miss this unique opportunity with our guest presenters, Better Angels, a bipartisan citizen's movement.
