Message From Wendy & Kenny

Happy Holiday's Parents and Guardians!

As we celebrate the holiday season and wrap up 2022, us at the Parent Institute extend our heartfelt gratitude to our students, employees, and families. This year has taught us so much about ourselves, learning to be patient, determined, community-minded, and compassionate. We are so immensely proud of how our community has come together to support our students. There are plenty of workshops that we have for our families this month that we'd like to share with you, please continue on through to have a look.

~ Wendy Gavini & Kenny House, District Parent Institute Assistants

Parents and Guardians, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please take a moment to complete the following survey so we continue to build the most effective student support.

Volunteer As A Family

Band together with friends and spend a few hours on a weekend serving meals, organizing donations, or cleaning up at a local charity. Call or look online to see whether organizations—shelters, soup kitchens, day cares, and clothing drives, for instance—are taking volunteers. Many are open and eager for helping hands, even more so during winter and around the holidays.
