Worth County PAT to Hold Messy Night

On Tuesday, May 10 starting at 5:30 pm, the Worth County R-III Parents as Teachers  (PAT) Program will host “Messy Night”.  All Worth County School District parents of children ages 1 – 5 are invited to this FREE Parent and Child Together Event in the Worth County R-III Elementary building.
“Children and their parents will enjoy a “messy” sensory walk, art project, and a snack!” said Parent Educator Beth Martz.  “These activities are meant to be done together as parent and child.”
Parents as Teachers provides monthly personal visits to families, periodic screenings, and access to resources about child development. 
“While we are able to meet with 19 families in our district on a monthly basis, this event is for EVERY family with a child age 1-5 in our district,” said Superintendent Matt Martz.  “We hope to see many more of our future Tigers at Messy Night”

Parents as Teachers is an internationally recognized program that has demonstrated the effectiveness of beginning at birth to empower all parents as their child’s first and most influential teachers.
