Single Parent Educational Support Group - FREE

No one is busier than a single parent! But making time just once a month for a group like this might be just what you need. Each month our facilitator will give a mini presentation on a relevant topic and then give you time to share and hear from other parents going through similar joys and challenges. Parenting a child without the daily support of a spouse can be daunting. Our facilitator has been there and is passionate about providing practical tips and strategies to make your life easier. Join us for any of the monthly sessions you can make. Register just once by sending an email to Mary Meier at MMeier@sowashco.org. Childcare may be available for a small fee and offered from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. You must register and let us know about your specific childcare needs at least one week in advance. We will confirm the cost and if space is available.

District 833 teachers may receive CEU's for this course by contacting mmeier@sowashco.org after completion of this class.
