McKINNEY — McKinney ISD is pleased to announce that the district has added additional sessions to its schedule of free Practical Parent Education classes. Now through June, the new classes will be held at Wolford Elementary on scheduled dates from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
All McKinney ISD Practical Parent Education classes, which have been made possible by a City of McKinney Community Support Grant, are free of charge and open to the McKinney community at large. The class schedule started in February and will continue through June 23.
Practical Parent Education (PPE) is a research-based parent program that helps families grapple with the challenges of raising children in today’s complex world. Individual class topics will cover issues such as understanding the role of the parent, developing trust within the family, communication, building self-esteem and working through natural life transitions.
Classes will be presented in both English and Spanish, and free childcare will be provided for children 4 and older.
