Parent Support

     A parent support group convenes weekly and facilitated by our school social worker.  We encourage and welcome all parents to attend, even if you cannot attend every meeting.  It is a wonderful opportunity to meet other Leeway parents, make new friends, and share your concerns.  Parents who attend will get the opportunity to discuss any issues they are having at home that affect them and their family.  For example, problems with behavior, bedtime, dinner time, grocery shopping, sharing and taking turns with siblings or friends, play dates, etc.

Attention Leeway Parents: Please feel free to contact us for more information on the day, time, and location for our parent support group.
