We at NYC-Parents in Action hope this email finds you and your families well.
For our NYC-PIA community, the beginning of the school year is usually a time of excitement, anticipation, new routines and calendars full of educational and social events. In these uncertain times, what are we looking forward to? Are your children actually going back to school? Are they firmly situated at home? Or, perhaps some hybrid of each? Are you scrambling to figure it all out in addition to the public health, economic, and civil rights challenges in our world, country, city, school communities and families? These challenges affect us all but we hope that connections with one another will bring some comfort to you.
We are here to help foster conversations between you and your fellow class parents and hope that you will find a warm, familiar feeling in attending the Parent Talk (via Zoom for now) in your child’s grade this year. If you are interested in becoming a NYC-Parents in Action facilitator, we are offering Zoom PT Training this fall, open to all.
Just as it does for you, this school year, for NYC-PIA, looks a little different but our mission remains the same: NYC-Parents in Action is committed to the belief that effective communication, parent to parent and parent to child, is vital to the healthy development of young adults capable of making sound choices.
Be Involved, Be Informed, Be Connected!
Until we meet again,
President, NYC-Parents in Action
