ParentTalk Starts January 26

A new program for Hinton families offers parents an opportunity to meet with local experts and receive helpful parenting information, without having to figure out what to do with the little ones. ParentTalk, established via a partnership between Hinton Kids For Success (HKFS) and Bringing Empowered Students Together (BEST), will hold monthly events on the fourth Thursday of each month during the school year. As an added benefit for busy parents, free child minding will be provided during the event. 

ParentTalk kicks off January 26, featuring a presentation by Trevor Haas of AHS on Kids and Sleep. You can find out more by visiting the ParentTalk website

Providing out of school childcare for students enrolled in Kindergarten up to age 12, HKFS offers a safe transition from the school to a controlled, supervised environment where children can socialize, play and learn. HKFS children are greeted at the school bus drop off and escorted to the guild space. In addition to fun programming, HKFS offers homework support.
