Welcome to the new school year!


We are excited to bring our families lots of great information, fun group connections and new opportunities to connect and learn.

About Lee's Summit R7 Parents as Teachers

As a parent you are your child's first and most important teacher. Your child learns during those early years more than at any other time in their life! Our goal is to support families in Parents as Teachers by providing information and ideas that emphasize parent-child interaction, understanding of child development and the well-being of the family.

Parents as Teachers is for all families with children prenatal to pre-kindergarten that reside within the Lee's Summit R7 boundaries.

Families receive:

  • regular home visits with a certified parent educator
  • Annual health & developmental screening
  • Group connections (family activities or speakers)
  • Resource referrals and connections
Together, these provide families with a program of support so that children are able to reach their full potential.


If you know someone that resides in the school boundaries and has a child prenatal to pre-kindergarten, please feel free to share this newsletter.

A HUGE thank you!

Journey Church International came to share their 'love' to our building during their "Love Week". They had a team come to spruce up our grounds before our students and staff come for the first day of classes! Lots of weeding, mulching, planting flowers and trimming took place!


Thank you!
