Parents, Guardians, and Community...
Welcome to the 2019-2020 Academic School Year!
Raising the Standards by Connecting with families and communities Onward!
It serves me great honor and pleasure to be a part of the Family and Community Specialist Team. We work collaboratively with the Family and Community Engagement Office as we connect onward with family, school, and community partnerships. One of our focuses is building and embracing relationships. I strive to be one of the best liaisons between family, school, and the community promoting parental involvement. As the dynamics of society changes, "Raising the Standards of Achievement, Attendance, and Character" is constant. It takes relentless efforts of actively engaging parents and the community in developing effective relationships and partnerships, ultimately ensuring student achievement and school improvement for all. I strive to help families establish a home environment that supports children as students and promotes effective communication between schools and homes. While recruiting and organizing parental involvement and support is important, providing information and ideas to enhance learning at home is just as important in developing parents as leaders and representatives. We welcome you to become a part of our district's Parent Action Council (PAC), as needs continue to grow, your involvement is just as important in the district and school-wide planning along with decision-making. Your involvement is a very strong component to our students becoming successful productive citizens of a dynamic evolving society.
I challenge parents to get connected and stay connected by attending at least one (1) event and/or meeting a month.
I thank you in advance for allowing me to be very instrumental as I serve as your Family and Community Specialist. I am available during school hours and ready to assist. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or e-mail. 314.771.0010/ Constance. Myers@slps.org I Look forward to connecting with you and partnering with you.
OPEN IS A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITIES AND POSSIBILITIES!
