Letter from the Co-Presidents – May 2018

Dear Parents in Action Community,

How quickly the school year flies by! Many of you are already engaging in summer plans for your children whether it’s camp, summer jobs, internships or just plain family fun.

NYC-Parents in Action experienced an amazing year as we acted in partnership with both families and schools. We reached 3,700 parents with over 220 facilitated Parent Talks™ this year alone. Furthermore, over 1,400 of you registered for our seminars. As a thank you we are attaching the recaps of those events and a link to our popular blog, all of which can also be found on our website: parentinaction.org.

We look forward to presenting you with another informative season starting in the fall. Thank you for helping to make this year such a success.

Have a happy and restful summer,
Ann-Marie Myers and Lucy Martin Gianino
Co-Presidents, NYC-Parents in Action
