BENEFITING: FAMILIES IN SCHOOLS
ORGANIZER: FAMILIES IN SCHOOLS
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Just over a year ago, I was blessed to join the Families In Schools (FIS) team and embark on a passionate journey to empower parents, community agencies and schools to be agents of change through authentic parent engagement. For it is through authentic parent engagement that parents are honored as a child's first and foremost teacher, and valued as partners and advocates in their child's education.
In my role as the Training & Curriculum Support Manager I have had the opportunity to work across our agency’s strategic priorities and see the first hand the impact of our work with parents participating in our various educational programs, advocacy efforts, as well as forums and conferences.
It is with great humility that I would like to share that parents have expressed their appreciation for FIS not only validating the strengths and knowledge they have, but for providing them with the tools and resources they need to support their child's academic success, and future. If you would like to hear first hand from some of these parents and about one of our programs, please click on the video to the left, which highlights our College Knowledge Academy.
I am more than honored to be a member of the amazing FIS family and help move our mission, to involve parents and communities in their children’s education to achieve lifelong success, forward. If you would like to contribute to our efforts and help ensure that families across California, and the nation, continue to benefit from our programs and efforts, I would be ever so appreciative. No gift is too small...
