Parent University a Huge Success!

On Thursday night, the East Williston School District combined forces with the Roslyn School District to present the second installment of Parent University. The evening was divided into two sessions, providing parents with an opportunity to see topics of varying interests. While parents were attending these “classes,” Wheatley students provided babysitting services to younger children. Refreshments were provided to our guests.
