Our Mission: To engage in an education that enables all of us to participate in, contribute to, and benefit from the cultural richness and economic vitality of our communities.

As responsible stewards, we are committed to: Opportunity: We support the fulfillment of potential in ourselves and each other. Excellence: We aspire to the highest ideal with honesty and integrity. Inclusiveness: We honor and embrace the uniqueness of every individual, and promote the free and civil expression of ideas, perspectives and cultures.

On Saturday, March 9, 2019, the Parenting Education Department will be holding its 42 nd Annual Family Fun Day. This special event raises money to support those parents who meet eligibility requirements for reduced costs to attend our classes. This is a carnival type event geared for families with children aged 0-6. During this event, we have a drawing supported by donations of items by community members. We sell drawing tickets for these items. We also sell tickets to "play" the various activities such as bounce houses, a putting green, and playdough, just to mention a few.
In 2017-2018, we gave out 62 grants totaling $5,332.22 to local families in need. These families could not have otherwise attended a Parenting Education class. During the Fall Term of this year, we gave out 21 grants totaling over $1,700.00. We are looking for volunteers to help with this one day event.
