Anti Bullying Conference Flyer 2014

The KHS Parent Association and Kingston High School are hosting the Kingston Community Anti Bullying Conference – Prevention & Intervention: A Personal, Parental and Public Response to Bullying this Saturday May 10, 2014 from 9am – Noon.

The conference offers 14 different workshops with a wide variety of topics sure to appeal to students grades K-12 and adults.  Whether families have a child who is being bullied, bullying others, being impacted as a bystander or the family is concerned that something might happen in the future, they can leave the conference empowered to help their child and even reach out to others in Kingston to make changes in the bullying epidemic that we are facing.  Community members of Kingston are also invited to attend.

Descriptions of the various workshops along with instructions to register for the conference are found at www.kingstoncityschools.org/khspa  Pre-registration is encouraged.  A separate registration form should be completed for each student and/or each parent attending the conference.  Parents, students grades K-12 and community members are all invited to attend the conference.

Welcome to Jolyn’s Education Corner

I am a parent in the Kingston City School District and I have a passion to help parents be informed regarding the many education issues and things to do as our children move from Kindergarten through Twelfth grade.

So many things to do and so little time!

  • Deciding what to discuss during teacher conferences
  • Helping our student with his/her homework
  • Deciding whether to opt-out/refuse the standardized tests (or why would anyone want to do that in the first place?)
  • Figuring out how Common Core State Standards might impact the education that students here in Kingston will receive
  • Dealing with bullying in our schools
  • and on the list goes!

My hope for the Education Corner is to pull information together from various places to make it easier for parents to access and also provide a place for parents to talk about topics important to our district.

Let’s make Kingston a place where parents come together and help our children receive the best possible education!

Let me know what you would like to discuss.
