Trinity First School believes one of the best ways to support the learning of its students is to offer support to the most important people in our students' lives — their parents/guardians!
We believe this so strongly that we not only provide this program free of charge, but we also offer a tuition credit to each family that attends.
Parent Education Nights are typically held on the first and third Tuesdays each month. (Check the school calendar for the most up-to-date schedule). The evening begins at 5:00 P.M. with a dinner provided by a partner church or individual. After dinner, activities for the children are offered while the parents gather together for an educational session. Examples of topics include:
- Family Health Concerns
- Supportive Parenting — led by Marilyn Sharpe, Marilyn Sharpe Ministries, LLC
- Internet Safety
- Healthy Meal Workshops
This year, we will be talking about the ideas in a book called The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Parenting. No, Marilyn has not lost her mind. Yes, she knows this is the hardest job anyone does in God’s world. Join Marilyn and all those who are parenting the amazing kids at Trinity First to uncover how we can build positives relationships with our children that help them to grow into all God created them to be. We will explore the difference between disciple and punishment. We will learn how to do the Three C’s: Connection, Communication, and Cooperation. We will discover what our kids’ behavior really means. We will figure out how to recover from mistakes. Come and learn from each other. Leave refreshed to do this every day.
Many families find it convenient to have their children attend Tiger Club (after-school program) until the Parent Education Night begins. We offer Tiger Club free of charge on these evenings for families who attend Parent Education Nights. If you wish for your child to stay in Tiger Club, please contact Anna VanVleet the day before the Family Night you wish to attend.
