Ramsey Parent Academy - 2/5/20 - Supporting Our LGBTQ Community

We hope you can attend our #RamseyParentAcademy on Wednesday, Feb. 5, which will focus on talking about LGBTQ+ issues and ways to support that community. ALL parents and friends are welcome: those who are involved in the LGBTQ+ community, those who want to show support, and those who want to be better informed as these issues become part of their social or professional spheres.

This special presentation and community conversation will cover the basics, including appropriate vocabulary and helping you know what – and what not – to say.

You’ll learn best practices and strategies to help create an inclusive environment for your children, their friends, and other parents. Several well- trained professionals will be on-site to answer questions and offer guidance.

Acceptance starts with education, and the education can start or continue at our next #RamseyParentAcademy.

It starts at 7:30 p.m. next Wednesday at Smith School. This simple RSVP form will help us frame the discussion based on our audience, and will enable you to submit a question in advance.

We have other Parent Academies planned through April 1, covering timely topics such as vaping, emotional mastery and students’ perceptions of social media.
