D-155 Offers its Parent University

CRYSTAL LAKE – District 155 has set its fifth annual Parent University to help parents guide current and future district students through their high school years.

The free “university” of practical information runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 23. The registration deadline is today.

Licensed clinical counselor Lorena Gorey will be the keynote speaker. She will talk about the changes to the parent-child relationship during the high school years.

A former District 155 guidance counselor, Gorey will discuss productive ways in which parents can be part of their child’s life, how to ask questions without interfering, how to be supportive but not controlling, and how to be an effective cheerleader for one’s child.

Participants can choose two breakout sessions with topics on bullying, college preparation, teen sexuality, teen depression and more.

A full list of courses and information can be found on the district’s website at www.d155.org, or by calling 815-455-8500.
