Talking about Race

As parents we should strive to make the world a better place for ALL children.  Now is the time to listen, learn and share and to have important conversations within our families.  

MI Parent Edge is sharing resources to help us all learn more about race and how to be anti-racist.  Community perspectives are invited as we learn together. View View articles, resources and videos on the topics of anti-racism and talking about race.


Parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic

Never before have we, as parents, been challenged in this way.  The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us into unchartered parenting territory.  MI Parent Edge recognizes that we are all being challenged right now to utilize every tool we have in our parenting toolboxes.  We will continue to provide content and programs that support our students, parents, staff and community. 

View articles, resources and videos to help us navigate this unchartered territory!
