Back To School Conversations starting Sept. 18

Sugar Creek Lutheran Church (located north of Delavan at: N5690 Cobblestone Rd, Elkhorn, WI 53121) is hosting free, public family strengthening workshop series. Have you asked, "How can I best help my child and our family navigate each stage at school?"Whether your child is just starting primary school, heading to middle school or contemplating high school and life beyond, you may have some questions about what to expect. These Monday evening sessions, starting mid-September, will look to answer those questions and much more.  Each panel will include students and parents who have successfully completed that nights stage of schooling.A lite dinner will be provided. The sessions are not religious-based and are open to any parent. Childcare for preschool-aged children will also be provided.
