Woburn Parent Network Announces Upcoming Programs

After starting the Woburn Parent Network (WPN) with six successful virtual presentations, the next WPN will focus on our end goal of building a community where parents can support each other and find resources. SCI Woburn invites parents to attend the WPN Parent Support Forum: an evening of conversation centered on parent-to-parent connections and ways the WPN can continue to support your efforts.

The WPN Parent Support Forum will take place on two separate nights to address the needs of both the hybrid school population and those of the fully remote (Virtual Academy & homeschool) population. The WPN Parent Support Forum for fully remote parents will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, November 10th at 6 PM. The Forum for hybrid school parents will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, November 11th at 6 PM

Forum Goals:

  • Begin to build a peer-to-peer support system for Woburn Parents 

  • Gain actionable insight into the resources and programming SCI/WPN can provide or coordinate to support Woburn Parents 

  • Generate solution-oriented ideas for addressing identified challenges

Woburn Parent Network, a collaboration between SCI Woburn, Woburn Public Schools and The James L. McKeown Boys and Girls Club, was formed in April to help bring relevant programming to and encourage productive conversation between the parents of Woburn.  As part of a Back to School series WPN is presenting another great program on Monday, September 14 at 6 PM.  

This spring over 100 people joined the Woburn Parent Network (WPN) program featuring national expert Jon Mattleman talking about “Teens, Tweens and Quarantines.” Based on the great feedback on the program, and the current issues families face as a back to school time like no other approaches, the WPN is bringing Jon back for another presentation on Wednesday, August 26, at 6 p.m. Be sure to join on Zoom!
