NEW Family Support Specialist Joins Alta Vista Elementary
Hello, Alta Vista Families!
My name is Elizabeth Ligawa, and I am excited to be in this brand new role that is specifically designed to support you- the families of Alta Vista Elementary. My title is Family Support Specialist, and part of my role is to be a connection point for families to the school. Waco ISD families were recently asked to identify what they wanted to see more of in schools. Many of those families stated that it would be helpful to have a point person at the school for things that impact the household and other areas of family life. This could look like connecting to resources for utilities; helping your child get to school; finding family support due to a loss; helping your child at home; resources for groceries; finding transportation; finding ways to be involved or volunteer; etc.
I would love to be that connection point for you and your family. Please come by and say hello, and let's set up a time to visit. You can reach me at (254) 662-3050 at ext. 211. Families are the foundation of our community, and I look forwarding to supporting you this year.
Elizabeth Ligawa, MDiv/MSW
