Family workshop to be held in Frisco


One of a parent’s responsibilities is to give their son or daughter tools they can use to successfully launch into their adult life, and the Frisco Independent School District (FISD) has organized a workshop for parents and caregivers, as well as students, that can help them develop a healthy sense of self-esteem.

The session, which has been titled ‘There’s Power in the Struggle, Together’ will provide an introduction to a set of innovative methods that can help a student to boost his or her self-esteem and accept responsibility for their successes. It will also stress the importance of family engagement, as this can help young people to develop a strong sense of respect and responsibility, which can translate from the family into a classroom setting and lead to them being able to get better grades in Frisco, and achieve greater academic success that may result in better career prospects.

According to the FISD, the plan is for scholars and their parents or other caregivers to attend as a unit. They will walk away with a set of skills and other tools that they will be able to put to use immediately, which should give rapid results and sustained personal growth.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, March 25 in the FISD Student Opportunity Center, which is located at 6928 Maple Street in Frisco. Anyone who would like to RSVP or find out additional details is asked to contact Lisa Thomas-Vernon at vernonl@friscoisd.org.
