"Solving the Puzzle of Parenting . . . One Piece at a Time."

The South Brunswick Municipal Alliance and the South Brunswick School District have partnered to offer a series of workshops under the umbrella of the South Brunswick Parent Academy (SBPA).  The Academy was founded on the concept of "Solving the Puzzle of Parenting … One Piece at a Time."  In its eleventh year, SBPA continues to offer parenting workshops, as well as District workshops on curriculum, instruction and safe and caring schools.  This year's Academy provides a wealth of information on timely and relevant issues facing families today.

Most workshops will be held at Crossroads North Middle School from 7:00-8:30pm and will offer free childcare for children 3 years old and above (unless otherwise noted.)  Please note that this year, the first two workshops on Oct. 6 & 27 will be held at South Brunswick High School: a two-part film study of The Race to Nowhere.  Be on the lookout for the Online Friday Folder for your school, which will further explain our upcoming workshops.  A link to the SBPA 2016-17 Course Book is below.

In an effort to 'go green' and keep up with the times, the SBPA will no longer be sending hard copy flyers home to advertise workshops.  All communication regarding the workshops will be done through each school's Online Friday Folder and email communication.  Registration can be done online on the SBPA webpage (see below).
