Dawson Parent University

Although families are the primary educators of their children, student achievement throughout life is increased when the School and families work together as partners.

Virtual Parent University Series

In conjunction with the Parent Association Executive Committee, The Alexander Dawson School hosts and facilitates Parent University workshops to provide current research in parenting and child development.

Continuing Dawson's tradition of introducing to our community transformative and expert speakers who are leaders in their field, the 2019-20 Parent University series will deliver insight with motivational and encouraging ideas to help parents develop the will and the way to create a positive impact on your child's life.  We invite you to take this journey with us as we work to create an arena of positive change, not only within the Dawson campus but throughout our community as a whole.
