Every 2nd Tuesday of the month McColl School works in partnership with Family Literacy to provide Parenting Workshops. The Family Literacy Program's mission is to empower individuals to achieve greater self sufficiency through family education and literacy instruction. During these workshops, parents learn to:
*Eliminate power struggles
*Discipline without yelling
*Be kind and firm
*Respond effectively vs. react emotionally
*Create an encouraging family
*Feel calmer and enjoy being a parent
*Develop mutual respect
*Minimize hassles, tantrums and tears
Parents, please consider visiting www.scfriendlystandards.org, a site which provides easy access to families regarding what children should be learning in school each year. These family-friendly standards are organized by grade level and address English Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. The site includes updated content for the Common Core State Standards and is available in English and Spanish. The majority of the content for Common Core on the site was developed by the Council of the Great City Schools. They have developed a 3-minute video which explains the standards to general audiences as well; it is available at http://www.cgcs.org/Page/334.
