Elementary school Family Nights, which provided Quakertown Community School District parents an opportunity to build strong relationships with their children, is returning in an online format.


The Family Service Association of Bucks County and the Early Learning Resource Center are holding a virtual conversation, via Facebook LIVE!, with Patty Kent, a Learning Behavior Specialist. The topic is “Positive Parenting During the Pandemic.”

The free event is scheduled for Tuesday, May 19, from 6:30 to 8 p,m. It can be found on Family Service’s Facebook Page. Please click here to register.


“The COVID-19 pandemic we are all living through is creating stresses for everyone,” said QE Principal Dr. Michael Zackon. “I am very happy our elementary school families have this excellent opportunity to get information from experts on better ways to cope with family life during these unique times.”


When buildings were open earlier this school year, families with students in QCSD elementary schools gathered each month at Quakertown Elementary for snacks, games, crafts and book giveaways. They heard from expert speakers about Internet Safety, Cops and Kids; Fire Safety, Healthy Living, Parental Stress and Personal Safety.


At Tuesday’s online event, giveaways of age-appropriate books and learning materials will be mailed to event participants. Again, please click here to register.
