Parent University:
Educating, Empowering, and Engaging Families for Student Success

Parents and family members can earn their ‘degrees’ in family engagement by attending courses at Wicomico County Public Schools' Parent University.  This series of monthly events helps provide guidance and support for families on topics such as reading and math fluency, homework help, and understanding the teenage brain. 

Classes are being held at the Wicomico County Public Library, the Entrepreneur Room. Childcare (ages 3 – 5) and homework assistance (grades 1 – 8) are provided.  The first session is Thursday October 5 at 6:30 pm.  The seminar is “How to Help Your Child with Homework.”  It will be led by Debbie Wilkins, former Wicomico County Teacher of the Year.

The second seminar is the “Four Super Powers of Parents” led by Dr. Holly Hatton, a supervisor in the department of Special Education, and a Nationally Board-Certified Teacher.  This session teaches skills (such as the power of silence) for parents to use when their children are being uncooperative.
