Hands-on strategies in building vocabulary and making inferences will be featured at the Valley View School District 365U Parent Resource Network gathering Tuesday, Jan. 25 at Lukancic Middle School, 725 Normantown Road in Romeoville.
Any parent or guardian of VVSD students in grades K-12 is invited to the event which is the second of three 2010-11 district wide gatherings sponsored by the Student Services and Professional Development departments.
The evening will begin with a free meal at 6 p.m. followed by a 6:30 p.m. session focusing on the school district's highly successful "Great 8" reading strategies program. The interactive training will help parents better understand strategies they can bring home to their children.
Childcare will be provided.
Reservations are necessary so VVSD staff can get some idea of how many people will attend the meal and how many would like to utilize the child care services. RSVPs may be made to Barbara LaFauce at 815-886-2700, Ext. 244.
The final Parent Resource Network session is scheduled for April 19.
