You’ve heard about how movement and activities that cross the midline of the body can help your child focus, decrease anxiety, help with self-regulation and body control, and improve reading, math and visual skills. Now, come see why it works as Parent University presents S’cool Moves and the Power of Play from 6:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the BPHS Media Center.
Join physical therapist Jessica Sargalis and occupational therapy assistant Kristen Miller to learn about the S’cool Moves program used in pre-K through grade 12 at B-P, and leave with some strategies you can use at home to help your child improve their ability to perform in school.
Parent University is a community collaboration led by the Broadalbin-Perth Central School District. Through Parent University, Broadalbin-Perth partners with community agencies and organizations to offer free courses, family events and activities that will equip families with new or additional skills, knowledge, resources and the confidence to become full partners in their children’s education.
The goal of Parent University is to increase parent involvement in B-P schools and empower parents to raise children who are successful in school and in life. Research has shown that parents can increase a child’s academic success through their involvement with schools and communities. Parental involvement improves student morale, attitudes, and academic achievement across all subject areas.
Parent University events take place in the evening and on weekends, making them convenient for working parents. Many events are appropriate for the whole family, while free child care is available at other events. Advance registration is requested for some events to assist with planning.
