Family Learning Day
Please join us on March 30th, 2019 for an amazing day of learning, fun and friendship. We realize that every student’s educational path is unique and special, and our program addresses many issues that may arise.
This year’s focus for Family Learning Day offers workshops to help create a successful, fulfilling future for your child. This year we will be joined by a team of educational experts who will share valuable information designed to help families and caregivers navigate the twists and turns of their child's education.
Karen Putz will be our Keynote Speaker. Karen is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, and “Passion Mentor”. She has written numerous books and helped individuals find their “true passion”. Karen will moderate a group of students as they explore their dreams, hopes and challenges on their own pathway to a successful future.
