• Parent Power!
    The Parent Power Sessions are conducted in partnership between Winston-Salem / Forsyth County Schools and Forsyth County Council of PTAs.  Studies show that children whose parents are actively engaged in their education are more likely to succeed in school.  Our goal for the Parent Power Sessions is to give parents the tools they need to be effective advocates for their children.  The sessions, free to all parents in Forsyth County, are offered throughout the year and include topics such as bullying, preparing your child for the next grade, and graduation requirements. Parent Power 2015

    To attract as many parents as possible, free childcare, refreshments, door prizes, and gift bags are provided.  The gift bags are usually filled with small tokens including pens, paper, and cups.  The Parent Power Sessions are a great opportunity for the community to get involved and show their support through monetary and / or gift bag donations.  Donations are tax-deducible and will be recognized on the Parent Power flyers and agenda.
