Empowering Parents Quadrant Event

The Fenton Quadrant schools have worked together again to create a sensational night of learning designed to empower our parents in raising healthy kids. The Empowering Parents Workshop will provide a wide variety of resources to support parents in handling situations that might put our kids at risk. This event will be held at Rockwood Summit High School on Wednesday, November 2, 2016, from 6-8:35 p.m. We will have childcare available for children ages three and up, courtesy of the RSHS service organizations. While you will not need to register to attend the workshop, please RSVP to participate in childcare, by clicking here and completing the form. Childcare will begin at 5:45 p.m. in the RSHS Main Gymnasium. We will have pizza and snacks available for children participating in childcare during the event.
