New PSN & NPN Events for South Side Families

  Megan Marshall grew up with her parents and two sisters in South Shore on the south side of Chicago and currently lives in nearby Hyde Park.  She attended the University of Toledo, Ohio and Sichuan University in Chengdu, China, and has a BA in Linguistics.  Her family currently consists of her husband Fabrizzio, her 2-year old daughter Maia, and Meimei the chinese born kitty who precedes them all! She is a self proclaimed language fanatic and has made it her mission to bring fun affordable language education based on authentic culture, story-telling, music and art to children in Chicago.  A year and a half ago she opened Lango Chicago- a Foreign Language program for children.

NPN and Hyde Park Parent Support Network (PSN) are joining forces to bring more parent programming to South Side families!

The Hyde Park Parent Support Network and Neighborhood Parent Network jointly present our 1st event – Friends and Family CPR class at the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club (HPNC) Monday December 12th – 7-9pm.  CPR is such a critical skill set for parents, family members, and caregivers.  And for many parents, if it has been a year since you had it last, consider this as a great opportunity for a refresher!  Attendees get access to the expertise of Safety Squad and Chicago CPR for only $5.  This class is open to the public – please RSVP to confirm your spot!

HPNC is an amazing nonprofit center where children of all ages from diverse backgrounds enjoy fun and educational activities during out-of-school time in a warm and safe environment. Please note if you are looking for a certification class, please check out their upcoming CPR event.

In August, PSN and NPN partnered to help South Side families tackle school choice at the South Side Preschool & Elementary School Fair.  Given our missions and the needs of our family members are so well aligned, we decided to get together and brainstorm ways we could join forces and bring South Side Families more programming.  NPN has been running programs like Parent University, School Choice seminars, and New Parent programming since its founding in 1980.  We are thrilled to bring this partnership to new families as they navigate parenting all over the city.

If you are in Hyde Park, please also check out all that PSN has to offer – active listserve, playroom, and of course our traditional get-togethers (our potluck, Halloween party and more).

INFO FOR PSN MEMBERS:

At this class PSN members will not only get the chance to meet the NPN team but also take advantage of a special NPN membership discount.  Future programming will include College Savings/Estate Planning, Potty Training, and more!  We are counting on PSN and local NPN parents to help us make this partnership a success by throwing out great programming ideas you would like to see, spreading the word to your friends, and volunteering.  Thanks for helping us grow these great resources!  Please email melanie@npnparents.org with questions and ideas.

  • Oni-Samurai / I

    Oni-Samurai / I did read through a lot of the upadted T & C, and have read that certain things brought would stay with the plus account from other sites. I'm not sure, but I would have thought that it was certain content that is brought via the plus account would be unavailable if you choose to cancel your subscription.It makes no sense to remove access to content that would be yours if you had brought it via the free psn service.Even if you get a 20% discount on say a map pack, you're still going to be paying a certain amount. If the map pack is completely free and they remove your access after the subscription ends, that I can understand.I'm not signing up for the plus service anyway. the free service is perfectly satisfactory and I'd rather spend a340 on LBP dlc or buy an actual game. http://jbskzgag.com [url=http://myokdkusbf.com]myokdkusbf[/url] [link=http://okvxvmo.com]okvxvmo[/link]
