SPS families are invited to sign up for the Family Connectors University (FCU) class designed to support you in Winter 2021!
The FCU class is a partnership between North Seattle College and the Family Partnerships Department at SPS. Here are some examples of topics we’ll be covering:
- How to help your child with remote learning
- Social Emotional Learning ideas for home
- Becoming a supportive partner at your school
- Helping your child with literacy and math
- Talking to kids about race, racism, and antiracist actions
A SPS parent who attended the fall session said: “The Family Connectors University class was a wealth of practical ideas, and definitely worth the time investment! In particular, the conversations about self-care, supporting our kids’ social emotional growth, dealing with “big feelings” and recommendations on supporting reading and math were fantastic. Implementing just a few of these ideas brought the pressure level in our ‘locked-down’ household from a 9 to a 2.”
The class will take place online via Zoom for 10 weeks beginning Tuesday, January 12th at 6pm and parents can participate synchronously or asynchronously, as sessions will be recorded.
It will be facilitated by NSC Parent Education Instructor Lea Evans, Principal Janine Roy from Queen Anne Elementary, Asosa Sailiai, SPS Family Partnerships Coordinator, and other special guest speakers as well. This year’s curriculum is very exciting and has been immensely helpful to parents during Fall 2020.
The cost for the 2-unit class is $39.42 and some scholarships are available. Please email Asosa as soon as possible to reserve your spot if you’re interested in enrolling.
