Parent and Community University
The Mission of Windham's Parent & Community University is to strengthen our diverse community by Involving, Informing, and Empowering parents and community members through educational courses and leadership opportunities.
Parent & Community University (PCU) is a free resource that provides opportunities for Windham residents to learn how to best support students while equipping themselves with the tools needed for personal success. PCU can be a day-long series of workshops and activities, or individual workshops on topics to involve, inform, and empower parents and community members in the following areas:
Parental Awareness: PCU provides information that can empower parents to raise confident, educated children ready for the 21st century. It also helps parents navigate how to support children’s academic opportunities and today’s educational challenges.
Parental Health/Wellness: These workshops provide information and activities that can help families build healthy emotional as well as physical lifestyles.
Personal Growth and Development: PCU helps participants to grow personally and professionally so they can become the most effective advocates for their children.
This year, PCU plans to provide parents tools they need to help their students who are participating in virtual learning. We welcome input from the community and parents about what information might be useful to you in planning future workshops, events and information.
