NATCHEZ — By noon today, the Parents for Public Schools hope to have made better communicators out of the parents in the Natchez-Adams School District.

Parent Coordinator Monica Cannon said today’s workshop is aimed at helping parents identify different personality styles and then learning the skills to address those specific styles.

Cannon said the main goal of the workshop is to help parents become better equipped to communicate with administrators and teachers in the public school system.

“A lot of times people think other people are hard to deal with, but if you know how to address that person’s personality type you can communicate with them,” she said.

Today’s event is from 10 a.m. until noon at the Armstrong Library and is free to the public.

Parents for Public Schools is a community-based organization aimed at strengthening public schools with help from the public.
