The Round Rock ISD Parent University is offering a series of classes for parents and their children, from newborns to four-year-olds. Through story time, songs and hands-on activities, “Families Reading Together” will empower parents to extend learning at home while preparing their young learners for school.

“The program is designed to equip and empower parents with learning strategies and hands-on tools they can use at home to nurture and instill a love of reading in their children,” Sibyl Lee, Title I parent programs coordinator said. “Thus closing the achievement gap in our youngest learners.”

The classes are free and led by the campus Parent/Community Specialist at Anderson Mill, Callison, Double File Trail, Forest North, Gattis, Live Oak, Robertson, Union Hill and Wells Branch elementary schools.
