Newton County School Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey will host a spring education summit for parents, complete with informative workshops, community vendors, and more.

“The education summit provides us with an opportunity to connect with our parents and community,” said Newton County School Superintendent, Samantha Fuhrey. “It's important that our students understand that both their parents and community value education.  Research supports the notion that increased parent and community engagement impacts students' achievement and success. I look forward to seeing everyone at our April 19th event!”

The Spring Education Summit is set for Saturday, April 19 at Newton High School, located at 1 Ram Way, in Covington. Hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Admission is free and parents, business and community leaders, and all other NCSS stakeholders are encouraged to attend.

Special informative workshops on a variety of subjects are scheduled, including: De-Stressing Your Teen; Money for College-ACT vs. SAT; Get Connected-Using Web Based Learning Tools; Is Your Child Gifted?  Learn about the Gifted Program; If You Can’t Find a Way…Make a Way!; and School Safety; just to name a few.

“We encourage parents and stakeholders to attend our Spring Education Summit,” said Fuhrey. “A key indicator of student success is parent involvement, so we hope to see a large turnout of parents. This is a special opportunity to learn more about the school system, share ideas, and also receive helpful tips for parents to help their students be more successful in school.”
