Make a Difference – Join Us
Parents as Partners
Stay active and involved in your child’s school life. Attend school meetings, go to parent teacher conferences. Read all materials that come home from school. Often changes in routine, fieldtrips, notes on your child’s progress and health alerts are listed in school notes.
Here at Head Start we offer several Parent Workshops during the school year such as Dare to Be You (DTBY), Parent Café, Love & Logic, Active Parenting Now & Coffee Breaks @ Noland. If you are interested in attending one of our workshops ask your Family Service Worker for the schedule. We would love to see you there!
Do you want to be more involved in your child’s education? Join one of our Committee’s.
- Education Advisory Committee
This committee reviews and approves the curriculum and provides input on the various educational trips. With the increased educational emphasis on our program, the committee reviews the assessment results and identifies the areas where children need to improve.
- Health and Nutrition Advisory Committee
This committee looks at the current health care needs of our children, families, and community; plans for parent nutrition trainings; and discusses other topics as needed.
- Mental Health Advisory Committee
This sub-committee meets with professionals from the community and review Mental Health Services available to the children and families through Head Start. They discuss ways of improving mental health services, arrange mental health activities, and discuss community issues.
- Policy Council Committee
The Policy Council actively participates in the development of school readiness goals and helps to assess the programs progress in achieving those goals. Being a Policy Council Representative gives parents an opportunity to have a meaningful voice in their child’s day-to-day Head Start life.
