In an effort to bring our families and education together, these workshops explore district initiatives and other relevant topics, and showcase how they come to life every day at PHS.

2018/2019 Parent Workshops


Growth Mindset

May 9, 2019


Thanks to all who joined us on May 9th for Growth Mindset Night. This event was an opportunity for families to come together to learn about how Growth Mindset can have a positive impact on our students here at school and at home. Parents then had the chance to discuss their ideas around Growth Mindset with other parents and a staff member. 
Kara GrawOzburn was our guest speaker for the event. Kara is a proud Perry Harrison parent. She has a background in developmental coaching, a Master's degree in servant leadership, and over 15 years of experience advising college students. Having seen how the introduction of growth mindset worked at the university level, she was very excited to hear of the introduction at PHS this year.   
Parents are also invited to read this article before: How parents can instill a Growth Mindset at home.





Digital Learning Night

January 24, 2019

Digital Learning is one of the district's initiatives this year called Ignite Chatham. Ignite Chatham is an instructional initiative that illuminates connections and coherence between multiple district programs, priorities, and previous initiatives. These efforts will ignite innovative instruction, empower student learning, and launch CCS to new heights. Guest speaker Delia DeCourcy, Executive Director for Digital Teaching & Learning for CCS, presented this initiative, followed by breakout sessions for parents to experience digital learning in the classroom.
