Fall 2019 Parent University

The Fall 2019 District 47 Parent University was held September 24th and featured clinical consultant and powerful speaker Jackie Rhew. Rhew provided essential tools for parents to help them build resiliency in their children. Parents learned how to help children come out of their comfort zone, deal with making mistakes, accept criticism as part of the learning process, and take risks that may result in failure.
