Thornton Howard III, a CMS math teacher, will hold a free workshop for parents, mentors and others who work with local youth.

The workshop will focus on using positive four-letter words – such as able, best, care, lead, time, plan, goal and team — to help children build language skills and positive identity.

Howard, who will teach at Ridge Road Middle School this fall, said he believes in the power of four-letter words to affect positive change.

Date: Thursday, July 8
Time: 7 p.m.
Place: McCrorey YMCA (3801 Beatties Ford Road)
Cost: Free
