  • The Wichita Public Schools knows parents play a key role in supporting their child's academic success, espcially with developing skills before they start school. The Growing Up WPS video series, for parents with children ages 4 - 8, provides short, simple lessons parents can do with their children to develop reading and math skills. The series will show how parents can use every-day items or places to teach their children about letters, counting, shapes and other items. The series is hosted by Deputy Superintendent Dr. Tiffinie Irving.
