    About Parent University

    The theme for Peoria Public Schools’ Parent University program this year will be “Knowledge Is  Power.” Parents and families attending the events throughout the year will select ONE “Knowledge Session” strand to attend for the FIVE events in our series.

    Families that attend and have a stamp for the five Knowledge Sessions in a single strand will be invited to participate in our end of year celebration held in April on the Spirit of Peoria!

    The “Knowledge Session” offerings for 2017-2018 will include:

    Each event will offer the same six Knowledge Sessions, however the information will evolve as the year progresses. The one-hour “Knowledge Session” is only one segment of each Parent University event. In addition, participants will spend a one-hour segment learning about and experiencing the host venue, and a one-hour dinner/presentation segment.

    Peoria Public Schools families are encouraged to attend any Parent University event, but must attend all five to be invited to the end of year celebration. To be eligible for the celebration, each person must RSVP (www.peoriapublicschools.org/rsvp or 309-672-6744) and have all five spaces of one strand stamped in this booklet.  Your booklet will serve as your ticket (no exceptions).  A nominal fee may be charged for participation in some activities at the various locations, including the end of year celebration. The celebration will be an “adult only” trip on the Spirit of Peoria for invited guests only. Children may attend that evening, but will participate in events at the Gateway Building and will not be allowed on the Spirit of Peoria.

    We look forward to seeing you at Parent University this school year and hope you walk away with the power to assist in providing your child an excellent education!
