Active engagement with your child and their school and our learning programs is one of the biggest predictors of your child’s long-term school success.
What is Family Engagement?
Active engagement with your child and their school and our learning programs is one of the biggest predictors of your child’s long-term school success. We encourage you to participate in events at your school – whether it be Family Connections, First Five Years, or Family Conferences – these are just a few great ways to meet other parents and learn new ways to support your child’s growth and development. Be sure to check with your school for individual events unique to your school throughout the year!
How Can I get involved?
These monthly meetings let you learn about what is going on at the school, interact with staff and community resources and get to know other parents. Guest speakers and FSS cover many topics required by our program or topics that have been determined by parent feedback and interest. Dates and times will be posted at your school.
First Five Years
Our program for parents that focuses on ways to build a strong foundation for your child. These interactive sessions occur each school year and focus on topics such as preventing problems, encouraging positive behavior, and preparing your child for school success. See the schedule here.
Family Conferences and Home Visits
Families in our program are encouraged to take part in two Home Visits and two-Family Conferences during the school year with their child’s teacher.
