PEPSA Partner: Proposed Project (2012)

Project Description:

The title of our project is "Building Bridges: The Home-School Connection". It will focus on providing parent-teacher meetings where different topics of interest will be discussed and to assist in bridging the divide between the home and the school. Alana will also be bringing in some outside resources to provide our parents with more knowledge and information that is available. The goal of this group will be to bring together the home-school connection with parents and staff as well as give parents some helpful insight on other resources available in their community.
