Join Carroll ISD for Parent University on Saturday, October 13

Carroll ISD wants to empower students to face life’s challenges by growing into braver, smarter and stronger individuals. In order to provide resources for parents, you are invited to Parent University on Saturday, October 13, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Carroll High School. Join safety and mental health experts as they share their knowledge on Self-Care & Mental Wellness, Health & Nutrition, Conflict Resolution & Coping Skills, Bully Prevention & Kindness, Self Defense & Personal Safety, Drug & Alcohol Education and Suicide Prevention, the seven focus areas of The Resiliency Project.

The Resiliency Project is the focus of Parent University this year, and Carroll ISD hopes to provide helpful resources and information sessions for parents to learn about the ways that Carroll ISD is encouraging resilience in students, and also how that resilience can be encouraged at home. The day will be filled with helpful resources through an Information Fair, two rounds of Breakout Sessions, and keynote speaker Dr. Adolph Brown III, who will be delivering an important message on bully prevention and kindness.
