The school experience is an important aspect in the life of a child. And yet, school often presents unique and sometimes unexpected challenges for both children and parents in adoptive and foster families.
Tapestry is hosting an event tonight (Saturday, September 17, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm) at Irving Bible Church entitled Back to School: Strategies to Help Your Child Have a Positive School Experience. During the first half of this Tapestry large group event we will take a closer look at some of the school-related issues and challenges for adoptive and foster families, and discuss ways that parents can help their child have a positive school experience. During the second half of the event, we will hear from a diverse panel of educators (including a public school elementary teacher, a high school teacher at a private school, a principal and a home school mom) as they share their insights and lessons learned for helping adopted, foster and at-risk children achieve and have a positive school experience. This event is relevant for all adoptive and foster parents, regardless of the age of their child(ren).
For those who cannot join us in person for this event, we are offering this Tapestry event live via webcast at www.ustream.tv/channel/ibcmessage. The webcast will start around 6:40 pm, and we will take a short (5 minute) break approximately half way through the event.
