ISACS has created an exceptional new series of six one-hour sessions for parents of children in all stages of growth. The presenters are leading experts in the fields of education, parenting, and child development.

For the 2022-23 school year, these Parent Series webinars will take place one evening in each of the following months: September, December, January, February, March & April at 6:30 – 7:30 pm Central/ 7:30 – 8:30 pm Eastern. Save the date! Closer to date, you will be sent a pre-registration Zoom link to get registered for each series. Miss one? That's okay, all webinars will be recorded and available to registered schools until May 31, 2023 unless otherwise noted.  

The first webinar in the series will be Thrivers: What Really Helps Kids Find Happiness Today & Success Tomorrow with Michele Borba which will take place on Thursday, September 29, 2022 at 6:30 pm central/7:30 pm eastern. 

Data shows that today’s youth are the loneliest, most stressed, and risk-averse on record. Though well-educated, they are failing to launch in real life. So how can we teach them to be mentally strong and more successful? Dr. Borba empowers both educators and parents to help kids thrive in today’s fast-paced, digital-driven, often uncertain world. Through her research, she found that the difference between those who struggle and those who succeed comes down to the personal traits that set Thrivers apart and set them up for happiness, as well as greater potential later in life. She offers practical, actionable ways to develop these Thrivers' traits for kids and shows you how to teach your children to cope today, so they can flourish tomorrow in school and life. These are lessons that will last a lifetime. All are invited. The recording of this webinar will be available until October 31, 2022.

Live webinars will take place via Zoom, 6:30 - 7:30 pm central/7:30 - 8:30 pm eastern on the following dates:

  • Thursday, September 29, 2022
