Parent Academy to talk safety at Rockdale Career Academy

CONYERS — Rockdale County Public Schools will host a learning opportunity for parents, as well as teens ages 11 to 17, on Saturday, Sept. 21 at Rockdale Career Academy.

With classes covering a variety of topics including parenting, college and career readiness, healthy relationships, computer skills, Zumba, financial planning, healthy eating and living habits and organizational tips, the Fall 2019 Parent Academy will offer guidance and assistance to local families.

Lifelong learning is one of our core values. We hope to instill this in children and adults in our community while at the same time increasing parent engagement.”
