 2017 AWES Parent Engagement Meetings & Trainings

Parent Involvement is vital for students to succeed in school and in life. We believe that all parents can contribute to their children’s learning and school success. Our annual Parent Survey helps us determine the needs of parents and students; and, we collaboratively work with parents to prepare a Parent Involvement Policy. The Parent Involvement Policy includes a variety of activities and services which allow us to be actively involved in helping meet the needs of our students and their families as reflected through the survey.

Title I - Instructional Lead Teacher (ILT) and Parent Outreach Facilitator (POF):

ILT/POF Personal Philosophy and Mission Statement

Our core beliefs are:

  • All children can learn
  • All parents can contribute to their children's learning and assist them with school skills
  • Parent Involvement means parents who are SUPPORTIVE - they encourage their children and are committed to them and their education and ACTIVE - they assist their children educationally in ways that may or may not be visible to others). 

These core beliefs guide us as we work with parents, community and the school to create a quality parental involvement program for AWES.

Parent and Family Engagement is key to helping our students learn.  Research has shown that the more families support their children's learning and educational progress, both in quantity and over time, the more their children tend to do well in school and continue their education.  With this in mind, it is our mission to help families, community and the school work together to strengthen families, enhance student learning and development, and create a learning community.

The netbooks are available for check-out to all eligible students, and will require parents to attend a one-time, brief training session. The Student TECH program is an excellent way to enrich the learning environment for the entire family! Visit the Parent Resource Center to check out a netbook.
