Parent Support Groups

Parent Support Groups (PSGs) offer a wide variety of grade-specific parent education opportunities for Grades 5-12. Held 2 – 4 times per year, each grade-specific PSG meeting serves as an outlet for open communication among parents to provide information to assist parents in making informed, grade-appropriate parenting decisions. These gatherings also give parents the opportunity to network with the parents in their student’s grade. For more information, please contact PSG Chair Betsy Givens at betgivens@yahoo.com or one of your grade group leaders.

Please login to MyLion for group leader contact information and notes from past meetings (found in the All-School Resource tile).
