Another Successful Aspen Family University!

Over 140 current and prospective Aspen families and Aspen/Glasser Faculty/Staff enjoyed the Aspen Family University held on February 8, 2014.  The morning got rave reviews from teachers, parents and kids alike.  In fact, all the kids told their teachers what a great time they had (apparently they weren’t expecting to have so much fun!).  Parents in Dr. Buck’s program endured the arctic chill in the Multi-Purpose room while still managing to have a fabulous time and learn lots of great new parenting tips.  Parents in the Introductory Program received a LOT of new information and asked great questions.  We send a huge thank you to Philly G’s and their newest restaurant Tavern on 60 for the terrific lunch!

Upcoming Parent Education Meetings:  March 11 and April 15 from 7:00-8:30pm
Many parents asked if we would schedule a follow-up discussion group to continue to answer questions and discuss these great ideas.  Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 11 and April 15 from 7:00-8:30 pm when we will meet to continue the discussion.  All meetings will be held at Aspen.  Both meetings are parent only events, please do not bring children. Look for fliers with sign-up information soon.
