QV Hosts Free Student-Parent Workshop

In order to foster academic and personal excellence in its students, the Quaker Valley School District is offering a three-part series for parents and children entitled, "Promoting Excellence at Home". The first installation of these workshops will take place this Wednesday, November 28th from 6 to 7:30pm at Osbourne Elementary School. Dinner and childcare will be provided, as well as raffles and gift card giveaways for attendees!

These workshops will be co-facilitated by author and educator Dr. Don Sheffield and QV community liason Terry Bradford. Parents will receive a copy of Sheffield's book, Practice Makes Perfect-Not!: Excellence is a Habit. Sheffield's expertise is focused on the academic and personal development of children, as well as parenting skills in the home. The workshops will provide practical tips and strategies for overall academic and personal improvement.

Attendees are asked to RSVP to Stephanie McKissic at 412-749-3616 or mckissics@qvsd.org with the number of adults and children planning to attend. For more information regarding the workshop, contact Terry Bradford at 412-414-1335 or via email at Tbradford321@yahoo.com.
