Family Education Opportunities

  • Working together with community organizations and professionals, NTPS is proud to offer educational workshops, panels and other opportunities for our families. Topics are age-based and relevant to developmental levels for our students to help parents with their part in helping our students be the best they can be.

Success in the Early Years (Preschoolers)

  • Success in the Early Years is a free, early learning family education series offered by NTPS to support school readiness. The series will be offered virtually. Workshops are held the third Wednesday of each month from 6:00-7:00 pm, except for June. We offer expert speakers, door prizes, and a chance to connect with other parents.
