MCS invites parents to education summits | Parents & kids
The Memphis City Schools Division of Parent and Community Engagement (PACE) will host the Third Annual Regional Demand Parent Summits. The summits will be held on consecutive Saturdays in November, on the 6th and 13th.
This year's summits will feature a new twist.
Superintendent Kriner Cash will lead an interactive Demand Parent 101 discussion with parents, which will include helpful educational tips from teachers.
The Demand Parent Summits will also offer parents an opportunity to gather useful information to support children in their pursuit for academic success and personal growth.
District officials will be on hand to share important information about the new state standards, TCAP prep, ACT prep, online courses, graduation requirements, truancy, gang awareness and much more.
Children activities will also be available during the summits so that parents can be fully engaged in the summit presentations. Light refreshments and give-a-ways will also be provided.
