Family Involvement

Parent involvement and open communication provides a consistent learning experience for students. Our Early Learner’s program includes:

Sample Program Activities

Engage families, students, and staff through a variety of program activities, including:

  • Read to Me: Families take part in read-aloud activities at the school, and learn strategies for reading together at home.

  • English Language Classes: Adult family members of enrolled Early Learners children can attend weekly ESL classes at the school.

  • Make and Take: Family members perform hands-on activities to extend learning at home by using everyday household objects as teaching material (such as “How to Make Play Dough”).

  • Parent Education Meetings: Professional community speakers address parents and families on child development, health, safety, and other important topics.
