Brookewood Parents Coffee

What? A monthly coffee break with other parents and school staff to enjoy and build community among us as we help one another go deeper into the meaning of our role as the primary educators of our children, the partnership with the school in this endeavor, and our own need to continually be educated.

Our desire is not only to chat and exchange parenting techniques but “To educate ourselves to the Meaning of Life so as to Educate our Children. ” We will have a short text to read together and discuss as we enjoy getting to know each other over coffee and tea.

 When? Wednesday mornings from 8:00 – 9:00am, monthly

 Where? Brookewood’s Multi-purpose Room

 Dates?  Wednesday January 22, February 19, March 18, April 22, May 20
