BENEFITING: DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS FOUNDATION
Hi all - I am focusing my fundraising efforts this year on Denver Public School students! As you may know, I started my passion project last year by creating the business "Preparing for Denver Kindergarten" with Nicole Martin. We are excited to help Denver area parents navigate the public and private school process for up and coming Preschoolers and Kindergarteners. We offer group information sessions for Denver parents of kiddos aged 1-5+, and private consultations for Colorado parents of kiddos aged 1-5+ who want to dig deeper into their list of recommended public and private schools. 100% of funds raised will be donated to the Denver Public Schools (DPS) Office of Family & Community Engagement, made up of five different departments that work together to educate, engage, and empower to create a better, brighter future for our students and our entire community: 1. Training and Leadership Development Department Empower parents to be more engaged in their children’s education by providing training, workshops, and classes in a variety of subjects from communication to summer learning to leadership. 2. Family Constituency Services Department Create strong, positive family-school relationships by guiding families through the Denver Public Schools system. We also provide coaching and training to school staff and parents. 3. School Based Services Department Provide opportunities for students, parents and families by partnering with community organizations. Through these partnerships, we increase student support in literacy, math, attendance, college and career preparedness, workforce and job skills training, and provide opportunities for families to become independent and self-sufficient. 4. School Leadership Support Department Empower parents and school staff to become leaders and advocates for their children by providing training, resources, and experiences. 5. School Community Development & Change Management Department Engage the community by providing information and opportunities for community collaboration during the school improvement and development processes, and provide venues for constructive dialogue around DPS initiatives. Thanks so much for helping to support Denver Public School students and families – any amount will truly help!
