On Tuesday, May 5th, you are invited to attend a virtual workshop organized by the Parent Engagment Committee at Iroquois Ridge High School, around assisting parents and youth with learning activities during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
We understand this is a pressing issue for many, and have arranged to provide this workshop this coming Tuesday, May 5th from 7:00 to 8:00 pm EST, your normal meeting date and time, in order to get this information and help to you in a timely manner.
This workshop has been designed to provide a tool kit that parents can use to help build financial literacy capabilities for their kids.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- About free activity guides and lesson plans you can use to assist with at-home learning during the current school closure
- How to access free online resources around money management, planning for your future, and career exploration for high school kids
- The most requested financial information and topics asked about by youth, and the free resources you can use to help address these topics with them
- Tips and tricks to help with time management, and how you can better balance assisting your child with at-home learning as a parent working from home yourself
This workshop will be presented by Kevin Maynard, VP of the Canadian Foundation for Economic Education, and hosted on the Zoom videoconferencing platform.
