West Creek Academy is committed to communicating the school’s vision to work together with parents to guide your children’s health and learning. We created our Parent University to provide a variety of parent-only sessions that offer parenting support, increase communication with parents, support learning at home, and encourage parents to be part of collaborating with the school and the community. We hope to address some of the common challenges we all face as we navigate the elementary years and beyond.
*All sessions will be held in the MPR.
