JPS Hosts Parent Teacher Association Workshops, Saturday


The Fall School of Instruction will be an opportunity for local PTA/PTSA officers and committee chairpersons to be trained on the best practices to properly manage a school unit. This event will be held Saturday, September 6, from 8:00 am–12:00 pm at Blackburn Laboratory School. The event is free and open to all District leaders and partners.

Parents, principals, teachers, and other community leaders are also invited to take part in fun and educational workshops that will help jump start the school year while enhancing learning in the home, school, and community.

Activities for the Fall School of Instruction include:

~Training opportunities for PTA/PTSA officers
~Parent engagement workshops for committee chairpersons, educators, and other community leaders
~General informational sessions for educators
~Vendor showcase of education/family-oriented agencies that will provide resources to participants
~Donation stations for school supplies (teacher and student), new/lightly used uniforms, and canned goods
~Light refreshments

A donation station will be set up to receive items that will help Stewpot and the JPS PIE Store to meet needs that directly affect our students.

JPS wants you to save the date, pack a few can goods with some new/gently used uniforms, and be there!
