The Kiwanis Club of Portage has launched a grass roots effort for parents in Portage. The new group has been named the Portage Parent Network, PPN for short. 

The group is a volunteer parent organization that supports parents in raising and educating healthy, well-developed children, thereby improving the quality of life in Portage. jul 17, 2014 – baclofen uk cheap purchase buy cod delivery. best prices for all customers! . free delivery, . zarontin can be used to treat petit mal seizures, and is taken orally. buy baclofen overnight cod buy baclofen china cheap . then i went back  online now baclofen without prescription overnight delivery

Kiwanis member Shannon Burhans developed the idea because she is a parent of two young children and began to discover that resources and tips for parents are sometimes hard to find.  She felt that more parents needed an opportunity to share their success or challenges with other parents.

PPN has eight members. Each member is assigned to represent one or more of the district’s 11 schools. The representatives touch base with the schools principals or home school advisors to identify areas where parents may need help. 

Last year, the group developed a program called “Middle School Life.” Several of the members had fifth- graders who were about to start middle school and all were experiencing some anxiety about the new venture. 

Many had heard horror stories and were petrified to think about what their babies would experience.  So, working in conjunction with the middle school principals and the Portage Police Department, the program was born. 

The program was presented to fifth-grade students and their parents. It was an honest, hard look at drug use, bullying and sexting. The program was offered at both Fegely and Willowcreek Middle Schools.  The goal of PPN by offering the program was not only education, but to encourage an open discussion between the parents and children. They plan to offer the program again this year.

The group started a Facebook page, Portage Parent Network.

Currently, they are developing a program to help out-of-work parents with resume building, interviewing skills and how to dress for success. The group is also planning a healthy eating at home series that will complement the PTS Wellness Policy. PPN is always looking for parental input.
