Parent Forums @ MDES

Post date: Sep 22, 2011 6:39:25 PM

Mount Desert Elementary School is proud to announce that it will be sponsoring a series of parent forums throughout the school year. These forums are made possible by a grant from the Stroud Fund of the Parish of St. Mary and St. Jude, along with support of other schools in the district. They are open to ALL parents in the Mount Desert Island region. Forums will take place on the first Tuesday of each month (with the exception of January) and will be held at Mount Desert Elementary School in Northeast Harbor. With each forum social time will be offered from 5:30-6 p.m., including pizza and refreshments at no cost. This will be followed by a presentation from 6-7 p.m. and a 30 minute question and answer period that will end at 7:30 p.m. sharp. Childcare will be provided at no cost for the time of the presentation.

The first forum is scheduled for Tuesday, October 4th and will focus on building resiliency within our children. The presenters for the evening will be Milja Brecher-DeMuro and Kip Young from the Acadia Family Center. Should you have any questions do not hesitate to contact Scott McFarland 276-3348.
