On October 17th, 2015 we completed the first of five sessions with the Strengthening the Family Workshops for our 8th grade families.  We had over 56 students and parents present at our first STF workshop at Glasgow Middle School. We will be providing the STF workshops to a total of 156 families by the end of this academic year.

Strengthening the Family explores issues teens may be encountering at home and in school and provides valuable solutions to overcome barriers that may negatively impact their students educational experiences. Parents gain information about secondary/ post-secondary education and strategies to strengthen their advocacy for their children. Sessions are offered in English and Spanish.
