Parent Education

Promoting Lifelong Learning

At Black Pine Circle School we offer several opportunities each year to come together as adult learners. We select our guest speakers and panel discussions based on recent research and the burgeoning data coming out relating to learning, parenting, and life for school-aged children. We typically host three or more Parent Education Events a year. Examples of past events have included:

Navigating Your Child’s Social World with Sheri Glucoft Wong

Kidpower workshops: Safety and self-defense

Film Nights: Race to Nowhere, Screenagers, Girl Rising, Embrace, Maker: The Documentary
