The Family Room for Parent and Community Involvement
The Family Room is a place for students’ family members to come for a cup of coffee or tea, to meet other parents, learn how to be involved in the school, and to get information about community resources.
Long time staff Thao Lor Lee, Neftali Ramirez, and Win World serve as liaisons between school and home. Family Room staff, which includes bilingual Spanish, Hmong, and Karen staff, organizes family events at school, helps families by scheduling conferences with interpreters, encourages parent involvement in the school’s PTO, Parent Academy, and makes home visits to school families. Staff in this nationally recognized program work to eliminate barriers to family involvement and student success by creating a safe and welcoming place for school families.
