A Message from Superintendent Rob Watson

Parent University is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to increase their knowledge and sharpen their skills as they fulfill one of life's most vital and challenging roles – raising thriving children. We know that students are more successful when parents are engaged.

I encourage you to peruse the offerings and participate as you are able. Please also let us know if you have suggestions for future classes. Let’s work together to support the development of children.

Most sincerely,

Robert Watson
