School Smarts - Starts Tuesday, January 22


School Smarts is a 7-week class where parent/ guardians can learn about their child’s educational path, understand how their school works, and meet other families.


Classes are free for all AUSD families and offered once a week. Dinner and childcare for school age children [5+] are also provided.


Paden invites you to learn how to support your child as s/he adapts to school and masters grade-level math and reading skills. These early lessons are fundamental to your child’s self-esteem and long-term academic success! 


Paden sessions start Tuesday, January 22.
