Saturday, February 25, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., the Family YMCA of Carver Villages in Atlanta and Michelle Brown-Stafford will collaborate to coach parents how to use the internet to their children’s educational advantage.
Families will be stationed at computers as Michelle coaches them dynamically on how to make homework productive; strengthen weak areas for kids who struggle and accelerate school work for fast learners. Parents and students will access free interactive games, worksheets and instructional videos on the internet.

“It always starts in the home environment. Educators love when kids are academically prepared! Not only does learning become much more engaging but teachers can then move through curriculums with relative ease,” expresses the mom whose son began taking college-level courses at age 11! Parents will learn to take an active role in their children’s academic progress and become powerful “managers”
The first ten (10) parent-child teams to register will receive their own computer station with internet access and a comprehensive list of free resources. Light refreshments will be served.
Interested parents should call 678-278-8424 to reserve their space for the gathering!
