Events & Classes

To see a list of our upcoming classes and events for this school year, click "Upcoming Classes" on the menu to the left!

Each month, we hold fun and informal workshops we call “classes,” each one led by a professional speaker on a range of subjects that are trending in the media. We want Parent University to be a fun, interactive, and informative way for parents to engage with each other about important topics that impact our school communities.
At all classes, we provide childcare, a light meal, and interpreters upon request.

There are no tests, grades, or obligations at Parent University—Feel free to attend as many or as few classes as you’re interested in. We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
