As Salaamu ‘Alaikum FTS Families,
This week I had the pleasure of attending and speaking at School District 204’s PDAC meeting. PDAC stands for Parent Diversity Advisory Council and is an organization that includes school board members, administrators, educators, and community members of the public school district. This month’s topic was about the positive impact that parental involvement can make in our children’s lives throughout school and even beyond. Being involved in your child’s education can include volunteering at school, but there are many more ways that can also have a lasting impact, and one of them is to be involved at the planning and policy level.
Enter ICN’s new initiative: The School District Engagement Committee. The mission is to advance our community’s representation in local school districts by participating in their diversity outreach programs. The first event that this committee (of which I am also a member) is planning is a “Meet The School Board” event on Friday, March 15th. It is important to know and have a say in choosing the people who make the policies and oversee the administration that is responsible for our children. I encourage you to attend. Please see the attached flyer for details.
Thank you and have a great weekend!
