District offering three-part Parent Education Series

Lowell — As a way to inform parents, equip them with tools and strategies and build relationships, the district is offering a three-part Parent Education Series: Adolescence.

“We are continually searching for ways to strengthen the relationship between school and home,” said Katie Erikson, a Lowell Middle School counselor. “We’ve seen when parents, students and school staff are working together as a team, we can really do great things.”

The three sessions, hosted in partnership with Joe Martino Counseling Network, will each take place from 6 to 7 p.m. at Lowell Middle School, 750 Foreman St. SE.

Sessions include:

  • March 6: The Emotional Lives of Teens & How to Help
  • March 13: Teaching Healthy Relationships at Home and with Peers
  • March 20: Drug Use with Teens

The sessions do not build on each other and parents can choose to attend one, two or all three. Registration is free at bit.ly/LASParentSeries.
