Tell me more about Parent Programs...

  • We talk.
    The Parent Network welcomes any District 96 parent interested in meeting and having conversations with other D96 parents. It's every parents' opportunity to sit down with other parents to discuss, ask questions, share concerns, offer suggestions, and meet parents with D96 students the age(s) of your own. 
  • We learn together.
    We discuss topics we're interested in as parents raising kids in the fast-paced, competitive, technology-driven 21st century. We give parents resources and help them anticipate what's ahead:
    • prepare families for transitions to kindergarten, middle school, and high school
    • offer professional support through expert speakers' presentations and Q&A opportunities
    • increase knowledge of the digital world kids today live and learn in
