Community Education

Family Support Group:

There is a weekly parent support group available to all parents.  The focus of the support group is to promote connection with other parents, provide information about parenting skill, and support parent mindfulness. This group is facilitated by Devon Musson Rose (the Social Worker at Backman Elementary).  There is no charge for the group and there is an option for both English and Spanish languages.  This group is held every Thursday at 12:00 pm (noon).
