Parent Education Series

  • pes

    With the support of the Maclay Parents Organization, the Guidance Office expanded the Parent Education Series to bring in numerous guest speakers and workshop specialists to talk about issues families face today.  The programs typically include a special assembly for students during the day accompanied by a parent specific program at night.  The goal of the Parent Education Series is to partner with families in offering education and information that will make a positive impact on their family.
