The Parent-School Association (PSA) coordinates workshops during the school year on relevant topics for parents. The goal of the parent education team is to support parents as their child’s primary educators at home and to provide information about how children are learning at TIS.

All Fall workshops will be held in the Learning Lab across from the library.

Please contact the PSA Parent Education Team with any questions:Bonnie Humphrey or Amy Franklin
