The Parent Center serves as a parent classroom -- a place where parents can learn about curriculum, community resources, communicating with teachers and school personnel, and ways to support children's learning at home.  Parents learn about the importance of the social and emotional well-being of children as well as strategies and resources to support their development.  The knowledge and skills that parents acquire at the Parent Center prepare them to be successful in their roles as their children's first and life-long teachers and advocates.
Parent Involvement = Student Success!
El Centro de Padres sirve como un salón de clases para padres, un lugar donde los padres pueden aprender sobre el plan de estudios, los recursos de la comunidad, comunicarse con los maestros y el personal de la escuela, y formas de apoyar el aprendizaje de los niños en el hogar. Los padres aprenden sobre la importancia del bienestar social y emocional de los niños, así como las estrategias y los recursos para apoyar su desarrollo. Los conocimientos y las habilidades que los padres adquieren en el Centro de Padres los preparan para tener éxito en sus roles como los primeros maestros y defensores de sus hijos.
Participación de los padres = ¡Éxito estudiantil!
