UPCOMING PARENT WORKSHOPS
Parent Liaison - Ms. M. Febres
The Parent Liaison works closely with the parents of this school and helps them to cope with the pressures and handle concerns regarding their children. If a parent has a specific need, that parent will be referred to the proper agency or staff member. The parent liaison provides workshops where parents learn new and creative ways how to educate their child and address health issues. The parent liaison will also assist parents in filling out forms or any other possible way that will improve parents' skills.
WHAT IS A PARENT LIAISON? A Parent Liaison is a person who works to bridge the communication between school and home by helping parents get the information, help and support they need to ensure their child’s academic and social success in school.
HOW CAN THE PARENT LIAISON HELP ME? Often, parents feel uncomfortable about sharing their questions or concerns with the teachers or school administration. Because good communication between home and school is such a vital part of your child’s academic success, the Parent Liaison will listen to your concerns and then work with you to make sure that your situation, question or point of view is expressed and understood. They will help support you if you need to find ways to resolve any issues that may be hindering your child’s success in school. The Parent Liaison wants to be sure that you understand what you can do to get involved, keep informed, share information, and help your child do his or her best.
