 Parent Coordinator Mission Statement

My Mission is to empower our parent community by improving the communication between all school constituencies. My mission is to raise the awareness of school goals and events by providing classes, workshops and opportunities for discussion and collaboration to develop a community of learners. Parents will be given the tools necessary to become partners with I.S.5 as we prepare them to become lifelong learners. By celebrating our cultural differences, we will unite to form enduring friendships.

 Education starts in the home and we, as parents, must remember that we are equally responsible for educating our children. We, as parents must help by being involved and cooperate with our children’s teachers. It is important to be proactive, productive, and positive to build a solid foundation. By our example, we encourage our children to succeed both in school and through out their live.
