From New Rochelle Schools:
Billed as an evening of education and information for middle and high school students and their parents, Family University will take place at New Rochelle High School tonight, beginning at 6:30pm.
The evening is loaded with workshops aimed at four different categories (Parents, High School Students, Middle School Students and Spanish Parents). In all categories, there are workshops aimed at students and parents either entering high school or entering college in the fall.
Among the workshops being offered are the following:

There is also a keynote speaker for each track aimed at that particular audience. Among the topics covered by the keynote speakers will be:

The Immigrant Educational Experience in Westchester
Food Ads: What’s The Real Deal?
Family University is a collaboration between New Rochelle FOCUS (Families Organized to Curb the Use of Substances) and the district’s Safe Schools/Healthy Students initiative, a federally funded partnership of New Rochelle Schools and community agencies.
