NCSD offers free parent classes in April

Parents have the biggest influence on a child’s learning and motivation. To help parents leverage that opportunity for the greatest possible benefit, the North Clackamas School District will provide a four-session “Parent Power” class in April.

Offered in both English and Spanish, the class is open to parents from any school.

“We hope parents will take advantage of these opportunities to build the skills and understanding that will improve family communication, boost academic support for kids, and give parents effective discipline strategies,” said district spokeswoman Leslie Robinette.

Parent Power: (See sample podcasts at nclack.k12.or.us/Page/18006) This free parent workshop for families with kids age 4 to 13 will help you motivate your child to be responsible, gain control through choices, enjoy your role as a parent and model good communication skills.

Free childcare provided! To register, visit lastingrelationships.org or call 503-546-6377.

Class schedule includes El Puente/Milwaukie Elementary: 11250 S.E. 27th Ave., 6 to 8 p.m. on April 9, 16, 23 and 30 (Tuesdays); Oak Grove Elementary: 2150 S.E. Torbank Road, 6 to 8 p.m. on April 11, 18 and 25, plus May 2 (Thursdays).
