Our August 1st, Back-to-School Workshop will provide a unique opportunity for our families as they prepare for the 2018-2019 academic year. This event will offer the chance for families to connect with Westfield Washington Schools, the Westfield Community, and learn about local resources.
Online Registration: https://tinyurl.com/wwsparentu
Our event is FREE to attend. We will host two identical sessions (Session 1 9:00 AM-11:00 AM & Session 2 6:00 PM- 8:00 PM). Community Tables will be available 30 min before and after both sessions.
Select from one of our 19 workshops. Each workshop will last 25 minutes with a 5-minute transition. Our 26 Community Tables will be in the cafeteria outside the classrooms to allow parents to visit throughout the sessions.
Parents this is for you!
Parenting is hard enough without having the entire world able to judge us with a quick text, picture, video or message. How much harder is it for our children? Do we know the most recent social media craze? How do we know what’s safe and what is not? How do we talk to our children about technology we weren’t raised with and are just now experiencing ourselves? Let’s get together for an guided, open conversation to figure this out together. Feel free to participate as little or as much as you want in the conversation. All are welcome, refreshments provided.
This is a parent only event. We will not have childcare provided.
Parent, please join us for an ALICE Information Night at Monon Trail Elementary School. The evening will be led by Westfield Police Officers Tyler Doughterty and Kim Daniels. The program will share best practices for our students, schools, and community with the use of ALICE. We will have space for 60 participants. Due to the sensitivity of this topic, we ask parents only attend.

Join WWS Parent University on December 4th for a FREE screening of the film SCREENAGERS.
- SCREENAGERS, introduces us to the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.
- Young people spend an average of 6.5 hours a day on cell phones, computers, and other devices. That doesn’t include the time they use screens for school and homework. ‘Screenagers: How Much Screen Time is Healthy?’ is a documentary that explores how much screen time is too much. Physician and mother of two Dr. Delaney Ruston became interested in this issue when her preteen started begging for a smartphone. Dr. Ruston saw other parents equally confused on how to balance technology with a young developing mind. She decided to delve deep into the science behind screen time to understand how it affects young people’s minds and development. Through personal stories and input from leading researchers, SCREENAGERS sheds light on the impact this screen time is having on kids. The documentary explores how learning, playing and socializing online affects teens’ developing attention span, fragile self-esteem, and moral instincts.
- SCREENAGERS examines the real risks of failing in school, social isolation and digital addiction. Ultimately, the film explores solutions to handle screen time and provides parents with tools to help young people develop self-control and find balance in their digital lives.
THIS IS A FREE film but we request that you RSVP.
