Grayson County Schools will be presenting a free book study to parents or guardians of children in our community. The book is called Preparing Children for Success in School and Life – 20 Ways to Increase Your Child’s Brain Power written by Marcia Tate.
The book study will be on the 4th Tuesday of each month beginning at 5:15 and will last about an hour. The first meeting will be on January 24th. Please share this information with your families. We would love to work with families that aren’t in our schools yet along as well as our students. The target audience would be birth to about 2nd grade.
