The Parent

May, 2022

Message From Wendy & Kenny

On behalf of the Parent Institute staff, we want to thank everyone for making it through the 2021-2022 school year, OH! And HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! As parents ourselves, we know it has been difficult at times, well many times raising our children but this school year has presented us with many challenges. Regardless of those challenges we persevered and we hope that you've experienced some bright spots and created amazing memories this school year with your children. With a new school year on the horizon comes a new look...a new Parent Institute. We hope that you will enjoy our monthly newsletter that will provide you with updated information on classes, activities, and resources that will support you and your families.

Remember the Parent Institute staff is eager to serve you and are available to support all your family engagement needs. Please let us know how we can assist. Let’s continue to work together to finish off an extraordinary year.

~ Wendy Gavini & Kenny House, District Parent Institute Assistants
