OWS and OWO regularly host speakers and authors to inform parents about issues facing families today. Information about the opportunities will be part of regular communication to OWO parents. Past speakers include Aidan Key, an author and educator on gender diversity in youth, and acclaimed author Ijeoma Oluo, who writes about racial diversity and equity.
At our Excursions, while the students are exploring with their class, parents will have the option of attending educational workshops just for them. Topics might include how to motivate your child, understanding project-based learning, or creating a learning environment at home.
