On Wednesday, August 28, Katy parents are invited to attend the Mental Health Awareness and Services seminar as part of the Katy ISD Legacy Parent Academy. The free event will take place at Legacy Stadium, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in rooms ABC.
The Katy ISD Legacy Parent Academy provides valuable, free informational seminars for parents. On Wednesday, August 28, the Legacy Stadium meeting rooms will host the first event of the 2019-2020 school year. This important session will discuss mental health awareness and the services available to students in the district.
Parents and guardians are faced with decisions that will profoundly impact the future growth and development of their student. The Katy ISD Legacy Parent Academy includes a series of informational sessions specifically designed to assist parents by providing valuable information that relates to topics that go beyond the academic experience.
The Katy ISD Legacy Parent Academy was developed to support the District’s Strategic Plan Goal 8: “We will actively support the emotional well-being of all learners.” The district values students’ overall mental health, and when needed, works to find outside services to improve their emotional well-being.
Parents can benefit from the academy's free educational sessions specifically designed to equip them with the strategies and techniques to support their children.
Sessions scheduled throughout the school year will feature experts on a variety of topics. The 2019-20 sessions will feature presentations from experts in topics that address emotional well-being, college preparedness, and college financial aid. All parents and guardians of Katy ISD students are welcome to attend.
