"Parenting with Positive Discipline" - Free Parent Education Sessions at Lietz

This once-monthly FREE Positive Discipline parenting workshop will cover the basic philosophy and give you tools that you can use right away.

Positive Discipline is for parents who are looking for research-based, long-term parenting skills that will encourage their children to become independent thinkers, become more responsible, and show greater respect for themselves and others. The teachings of Positive Discipline are filled with non-punitive and non-permissive methods that will build relationships and keep the lines of communication open.

Facilitator & Lietz Parent: Jasmin Canty, Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator

Our first session will take place on November 29, from 6:30-8:00pm in the staff room. I am looking forward to attending this and hoping to see many of you there!

Join Us at Lietz for Family Reading Night!

I would like to take this opportunity to share with you how grateful I feel to be able to come to work daily and spend hours with devoted staff members and wonderful kids. I love seeing you send your kids off in the mornings. Thank you for your hellos, insight, smiles and hugs. I am so, very thankful to be at your service. I hope you are able to spend the break making memories with family and friends.

Come by and see our Lietz Trees of Thanks. It is a beautiful display of sentiments by students, staff and families! Thank you to our Project Cornerstone team for having this vision and making it come to life.
