IPS is launching a new initiative called Family Academy (formerly known as Parent Institute). Family Academy is designed to provide the support, information and resources district families need to build a stronger relationship between home and school, and to improve family engagement and the academic experience for students.
The inaugural session on Thursday, November 9, 2023, at 5 p.m. at Arlington Middle School for a FREE event and enjoy some light refreshments.
Join IPS and Robert Jackson, a motivational speaker, education consultant and former IPS teacher, for this exciting inaugural IPS Family Academy session to help parents/guardians learn and master the following:
- The 4 needs of every child
- Meeting your child halfway
- Correcting mistakes with love
- Being emotionally intelligent as a parent
- Making connections between self and school
We are thrilled to bring back this interactive, educational and family-focused program.
Childcare will be provided.
