March 14, 1996|By Sally Buckler | Sally Buckler,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

WHAT WILL Glenelg High School be like next year and beyond? That is a question many of our neighbors ask as they look at redistricting issues and school populations.

On Monday, at Glenelg, the Parent Teacher Student Association will sponsor a meeting for parents and students that will focus on what they wish Glenelg High School to be in the future.

Redistricting is an opportunity for our community to take a good look at Glenelg, where it is, and where the school community wants it to go. The PTSA's Forum is a place where all who wish may speak up about curricula, activities, sports and more. The lively meeting begins at the school at 7 p.m. Call 313-5528.

Parent education class

A wise man once said that by the time we finishing raising our children, we'll know what we're doing. Now along comes Glenwood Middle School's PTSA is offering "Parenting 101, Successful Strategies for Parenting" April 2.

From 7 p.m. to 9: 30 p.m., you can attend workshops about conflict resolution with teen-agers, keeping kids away from drugs and alcohol and talking about sexuality. A panel discussion will deal with community connections.
