Family FOCUS



    Families looking to help their students succeed both inside and outside the classroom can take advantage of Family FOCUS events throughout this school year.

    Family FOCUS (Families need Ongoing Communication, Useful resources, and Support) sessions provide help and services to parents, families, guardians, and students with a variety of school and community resources.


    We have a great opportunity for our families to participate and engage with schools and the community.  On September 27th at 5:30 PM, we will host a Family FOCUS Virtual Learning session. This month's topic: Jump Start Your Child's Success: Support your child in overcoming challenges through resiliency and learn the advantages of using Family Access on Skyward.
