Parents invited to second university

Parent University is a district-wide call for all parents of public and non-public schools to attend training at one location.

The Natchez-Adams School District will have Parent University No. 2 at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Natchez High School Auditorium. It is very important for parents to attend this training and receive strategies and suggestions on how to assist your children at home.

The theme for Parent University No. 2 is “The P.I. (Parental Involvement) Express Part 2.” The district asks all parents to please get involved in their children’s education by learning fun, new ways to help children succeed in the classroom. This training will offer information about Mississippi Curriculum Test Second Edition and the Subject Area Testing Program. There will be two 45-minute breakout sessions in the following areas: reading, language arts, math, English, biology, U.S. history and algebra. The sessions will be presented by district teachers.
