• WELCOME...to our Parent Academy page.

    Parent Academy is a partnership between parents and District 25, in which parents are invited to join our community of learners. The goal of Parent Academy is to provide learning opportunities for parents to better understand ways to support their students’ academic success and personal well-being. We welcome parents and families to engage in various activities and events to explore topics related to mental health, well-being, equity and inclusion, and academics. Scroll this page for archived newsletters, further resources, or to submit an idea/topic for the next Parent Academy newsletter.

    Nov/Dec 2023 | North Cook ROE/ISC, Movie for Parents on Anxiety

    We'd like to make our parents aware of a resource provided by the North Cook Regional Office of Education/Intermediate Service Center. They are offering a film-based program designed to raise awareness around anxiety. The film, Angst, includes interviews with kids, teens, educators, experts, parents and a very special interview with Michael Phelps. We recommend this film for parents with middle school students.

    Please click here to view the trailer and/or the full-length film.
