The PTA offers TWO fabulous ways to experience Parent Education:

(1) Woodside School PTA In-House Parent Ed events

UPCOMING: Thursday, September 20th at 8:45 am in Wildcats led by Tom Limbert

The Parent/Teacher Relationship
Parents and teachers both have the best interests of their children in mind. Communication is the key to staying on the same page and supporting the whole development of each child. In this presentation, we will explore the parent teacher relationship and the best practices that lead to genuine trust and understanding and ultimately, the ideal support of each child’s academic experiences.
 

(2) Common Ground Speaker Series:

 About WES Parent Education

Through our Woodside PTA Parent Education Committee, we give you the opportunity to attend talks in two different speaker series, the "In-House Speaker Series" and the Common Ground Speaker Series.  The In-House Speaker Series is held at Woodside School.  Common Ground, a coalition of Bay Area schools that includes the Woodside School, holds lectures at other local schools.  All talks are given by experts and cover a broad range of topics interesting and relevant to parents.  ALL EVENTS ARE FREE OF CHARGE!  The Woodside PTA generously pays for the Parent Education Committee in-house speakers and the Common Ground membership fee so that our parents and school staff can attend all events for free!

Please take a look at these special events hosted by your PTA Parent Education Committee.  At these not-to-be-missed events you can join your friends and fellow Woodside families to learn and bond over parenting and education issues that are current in the news and on our minds these days.  As we rally to learn, dialogue, and be inspired, we invest in the cumulative wealth, knowledge, education and resources of our parent, family, and school community.
