Parent Perks is a parent education series featuring educators, psychologists, and writers who speak to the Lamplighter community several times during the school year. Local professionals talk about the important trends in the education world and help parents on topics that reflect the mission of our school.
Experts in the series provide the Lamplighter community with guidance, the latest research, and practical solutions to our toughest questions. It is our hope that these discussions will assist us in our most important role: igniting young minds.
