• Restorative Practices Parent University

    Building Community from Home to School

     

    What is it?

    Restorative Practices Parent University will be scheduled to provide families with essential skills that staff and students use at school that can be applied at home to support building positive relationships. 

     

    How can you sign up for this opportunity?

    A flyer was sent home with your student.  Please fill out the attached portion of that flyer.  Have your child turn the slip to their homeroom teacher. You can also download the flyer HERE and send it in with your student.  Slips will be collected and slots will be filled in the order in which they are received.  You will be notified whether or not you receive a spot.

     

    Purposes:

    • To build a connection between home and school
    • To build connections with other families/participants
    • To reflect on and self-identify parenting styles
    • To better understand “shame” and how to respond to family members experiencing shame
    • To apply restorative practices at home
