Being a parent in today’s world can be overwhelming. The Parent Education committee’s mission is to present district 103’s community with events that support families in this fast-paced, ever-changing world that we share with our children. As parents from diverse backgrounds with professional connections to child development, the Parent Education committee strives to present important topics that will have deep relevance to our parent community.
Each year, the committee plans a variety of parent education events that include speakers, discussions, and workshops for families. All events are free and open to the D103 community. Our goal is to provide the parents with diverse learning opportunities throughout the school year. As a subcommittee of the D103 PTO, all events and presentations are supported by PTO membership funds.
