Invest for Success
The PTSA recently purchased 60 bluetooth headsets to help our teachers as they attempt to teach both in the classroom and virtually at the same time. These headsets will allow the teachers to move around the room assisting in person students while maintaining sound quality for students learning at home. The PTSA is anticipating more needs as this unprecedented school year unfolds. Please make your donation TODAY!

Free Parenting Classes
The Relatives offers monthly classes on “Parenting Challenging Youth” based on the Love & Logic parenting model.
Classes are free and are held every month at our Uptown Charlotte location.
Reservations are required. To reserve a spot in an upcoming class, call The Relatives at 704.377.0602.
The Love and Logic model is a 30-year-old philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in the interactions with children. Love allows children to grow through their mistakes. Logic allows children to live with the consequences of their choices. Love and Logic is a way of working with children that puts parents and teachers back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences.
Classes are for parents with children of any age and the techniques are simple and easy to learn.
For more on Love and Logic parenting, visit the Love and Logic Institute.
