Hart Parent Academy Offers Parenting Tips

School district offers parents some help dealing with teen students.

Sponsored By:

San Diego Zoo - Koalafornia

Parents looking
for assistance in raising their teens are invited to attend the first Hart Parent Academy, scheduled from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, in the Hart
Auditorium. The program is sponsored by Hart High School and the Los Angeles County Commission on
Human Relations and is open to parents throughout the community, whether or not
they have students at Hart High.

 

The evening will
include an opening address by Dan Williams from Destiny Foundation, and a
selection of nine workshops from which parents can choose three 30-minute
sessions.

 

Workshops will
include such topics as developing a Parent Center; “A-G” requirements for enrollment in a University of California, Internet safety, bully prevention
strategies, teen development, college planning, living with teens, teen support
from ACTION, and a college panel.

 

“This is a great
example of schools and the community working together for the benefit of
parents and students,” explained Hart Principal Collyn Nielsen. “We are using
our experts on campus as well as local community expertise to help our parents
navigate through those years of raising teenagers. This is a great opportunity
for parents to receive very important, very relevant information at no cost to
them or the school.”

 

Parents can enroll
in the Academy by sending an e-mail to HARSVP@hartdistrict.org
or leaving a message at 259-7575, extension 120. Reservations should include
the name of those attending, a cell phone contact number, and the name of the
three sessions preferred.
