    The Central Bucks School District is proud to collaborate with our community partners in hosting a parent speaker series. 
    The goal of Parent Positive is to create a venue for community conversations around relevant parenting issues.  Parent positive is a collaboration between the CB Cares Educational Foundation, Doylestown Health, and the Central Bucks School District.

    All sessions are free to the community and most are held in the Lenape Middle School Auditorium at 7:00 pm.
