South Family Youth Resource Service Center Offers Readiness Workshops

Southern Elementary is offering a free parent workshop series to help families in our community ensure their young children are prepared for school.

It’s the simple things that make a difference in building a young child’s foundation for success in school and life. It’s not flash cards or expensive educational toys – it’s things like making your grocery trip into a treasure hunt for colors and shapes. Everyday activities are fun, easy opportunities to encourage learning.
