Family and Community Engagement: FACE
Everett High School: Family and Community Engagement Evening
Everett High School staff, in collaboration with EHS PTA, hosted a Family and Community Engagement evening at the CRC to share school data, identify school needs, and brainstorm ideas from parents, students and community members on a variety of topics. Everett AVID students led small group discussions on ways that the school can make students and families feel welcome and strategies for partnering with community groups to create a strong, inclusive school community that supports student success.
Hats off to these AVID students for facilitating those discussions and sharing the ideas generated that night. What a terrific example of FACE in action within our schools. Nice job, EHS!
James Monroe Elementary: Welcome Mat
Here is another great FACE example showing how schools welcome families from all different backgrounds and cultures. This welcome mat can be found as you enter James Monroe Elementary and includes the most common 20 languages spoken at their school. Working with staff and parents from the school, PTA Co-President, Jarucia Jaycox Nirula, used research from a Spring 2017 family literacy event to help design the welcome mat for roll out in August.
Nice job, James Monroe Elementary PTA!
