Title I Family Engagement Playlist Oct/Nov 21-22

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

The Title I Family Engagement Playlist is a resource, produced by GPS Federal Programs: Title I Team, to provide information and resources to our Title I Families. The resources will vary from edition to edition and will include a variety of topics such as: academic activities, community events, articles to support parenting, etc. There is a short form at the bottom of this newsletter that you can fill out to make suggestions of resources to include in future editions.

Free Breakfast and Lunch

Effective August 4th, 2021, the USDA approved one free combo meal for breakfast and one free combo meal for lunch to children 18 years and younger, for the 2021-2022 school year. Even though students will get free breakfast and lunch, it is extremely important for all families to fill out a Meal Application. You can do this by following the link below or by getting a paper copy from your home campus. Your application helps secure federal funding on our Title I campuses that provide additional staff members and programs.

re-make it by hand.
