Extending Lifelong Learning Opportunities to Parents

Extending Lifelong Learning Opportunities to Parents

                Twenty QAIS parents joined our panel of experts for our “How Do I Prepare My Child For Success?” information session. The panel, comprised of teachers, administrators, and parents, spoke on school/life balance, positive behavioral support, emotional and social well being, the importance of play, as well as other engaging topics for student growth and success.

                QAIS staff members Megan Martineau, Sean Oussoren, Dr. Eric Dustman, Rosemary Gosse, and moderator, Andrew Hasbrouck, joined EC parent, Cat Kung in presenting the information, while also taking part in an extensive Q&A with members of the audience. This was an excellent opportunity to open lines of communication between educators, parents, and their children, and it once again proved learning is a lifelong goal.
