Make Connections at the Parent Café
Each Center has a spacious Parent Café, a designated space for families to meet, connect, work, and share ideas. Think of it as the “living room” of the campus. The welcoming environment features computers, WiFi access, books for families, toys and games for children, and information on community resources. The Parent Liaisons and the Family Program Coordinator work out of the Parent Cafés and are available on a walk-in or appointment basis. It’s your one-stop-shop for parent resources.
Parents As Partners
Our Parents As Partners program is one of the best ways to take a front seat in your student’s educational experience.The Parents As Partners group at each Center builds community, helps parents learn from one another and supports parents in being strong leaders and advocates for their children.
From planning school events, addressing common concerns, and serving as an advisory committee on curriculum and activities, the Parents As Partners Groups work collaboratively to play a significant role on each campus. Families form working committees with unique goals such as raising a reader, gardening & outdoor play, parents helping parents, and more. By the end of each school year, these close friends become a shining example of leadership to the students.
Keeping Lines of Communication Open
Regular communication between families and teachers is essential to providing a high-quality school experience for everyone. You want to know what’s happening in the classroom—and we want you to know so that you can continue the learning at home. Our teachers strive to develop authentic and meaningful relationships with families and welcome them into the classroom.
We are committed to responding to inquiries within one work day and use a variety of approaches to share information including newsletters, calendars, flyers, brochures, email notifications and surveys.
