Parenting Seminar!

Parenting Seminar!

Triple P is a parenting program, but it does not tell you how to be a parent. It is more like a toolbox of ideas. You choose the strategies you need. You choose the way you want to use them. It is all about making Triple P work for you.

In this seminar, parents are introduced to Six Core Building Blocks for children to become confident and successful at school and beyond. These competencies are:

• Showing respect to others.

• Being considerate.

• Having good communication and social skills.

• Having healthy self-esteem.

• Being a good problem solver.

• Becoming independent.

We look forward to seeing you virtually on March 12th 9am-10:15am

At-Risk 4K Application

At-Risk 4K Application for 2021-22 is January 11 through March 10, 2021

To comply with new procedures and protocols, the 4K preregistration and screening process has moved to an online format. We will not hold the face-to-face screening scheduled for March 24-26, 2021 as this process is now part of the 4K Application, so 4K students will attend school as normal on these days.

To be considered, children must turn four years old on or before September 1, 2021.   Parents can apply online at https://bit.ly/3mHuiH9 or call 864-452-0437 if they do not have internet access.  Completing the application does not guarantee that the child will be enrolled. Notification of acceptance will be sent to parents via email by April 1, 2021.  Children selected for 4K programs must demonstrate academic or developmental needs and/or risk factors such as low family income and low parent education level.  A child’s primary custodial parent/legal guardian can submit the application. The GCS Virtual Program is not available to 4K students.
