So what actually is the Fall River Parent Academy? It’s a way to help children succeed in school and in life.
The Parent Academy is not a building or a single program run by any one agency or organization.  It’s a wide variety of free learning and personal growth opportunities, provided by many community groups, held at various sites throughout Fall River.  These free workshops, classes, sessions and presentations will address such parenting concerns as helping children with homework, dealing with behavioral issues, bullying, and the challenge of MCAS testing, as well as provide fun opportunities for social interaction and physical activity with such offerings as Zumba, yoga and learning to swim.  In addition, there will be personal growth sessions covering such topics as health and fitness, stress reduction, financial management and more. Parents and other family adults can select from weekly, monthly or even one-time sessions, choosing those subjects that are of interest to them, and are offered on days and times that are the most convenient.
