Parents Cafe – Iroquois Library – Tuesdays

Parents are invited to take part in the “Parents Cafe”, a series of conversations about student success, parent engagement, and the importance of education in our community. Studies have shown that parental encouragement and involvement is essential to the successful education of children. Kids that miss 10% of school days per year have a drastically negative impact on academic success. By high school, regular school attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than test scores. Metro United Way, in partnership with the PAL Coalition and the Bingham Fellows, is hosting the “Parents Cafe” to provide a support network for parents and to talk about the importance of school, daily school attendance. The group will meet every Tuesday evening through May 27 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Iroquois Library (601 West Woodlawn Avenue). Childcare is available on site, dinner will be served, and door prizes will be given out. Call Metro United Way at 292-6127 for more information on this terrific parental support system.
