Title I 2015-2016 District Family Engagement Support Agreement

Welcome to the Family Center

Here in the Family Center we provide support and empower our parents to be involved in their student’s education. Our mission is to ensure that parents know and support their children by understanding the next steps to successfully transition from middle school to high school and on to college. We work side by side with parents providing them with the resources they need to help them in the areas that they need help the most.  For example; clothing bank, food bank, utility recourses, counseling referral, tutoring referral,, etc.


Please check calendar weekly for up-dated workshops in the Family Center. Parents you may send your child to the Family Center at any time to pick up a Grade Check form from us.

Teacher Involvement

Thank you to all the teachers who have gone with the family center on home visits it’s been a great learning experience for both of us and is very helpful to the families as well as the students.
