Training for Head Start and ELC parents.

Starting Tuesday Oct. 1 and running through November 12, 2019 a Parenting Training will be held at Xan-wan’-k’wvt Early Learning Center. The class will be helping parents promote social and emotional competence in their children and show how to better understand what their children are going through and how to handle different situations. Incentives will be given to parents that attend and a very special incentive will be given away on the last night to a family that attends all of the sessions. A light meal will be served and child care will be provided.

In order to prepare for this class I need to know how many parents will be attending. Please fill out the bottom portion of this letter and return it to your child’s teacher before Sep tember 23. Even if you signed up at Open House please fill in the registration form. Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to seeing all of your at the class.
