We would like to personally invite our SUSD families to attend the FREE Parent University Project on Saturday, September 13th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

The Parent University Project (PUP) provides parents with research-based knowledge, skills and resources to support their child’s education and increase student achievement. This year PUP will focus more on college and career readiness for all age groups. Free childcare for ages PK-8 will be offered throughout the event by SUSD’s Kids Club program. Children will also have the opportunity to attend free sample enrichment classes that are offered at the elementary schools during the school year. Princeton Review will be sponsoring the event with Keynote speaker, Robert Franek, author of “The 379 Best Colleges”. Robert Franek was recently on the Today Show discussing the best rated colleges for students in 2015, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCDyUDofxAU&list=PL-NpEXrBdTqEnTKwykvzF-48DSILwuYBO.  PUP will also have a college fair for families to gather more information about prospective colleges for their students. We encourage our SUSD families to register and attend the event. It is never too early to be involved and learn what opportunities are available for our student’s future. We welcome all families to come and experience the unlimited benefits of SUSD’s Parent University Project.
