ASD Continues Series of Parent/Guardian Events with Your Neighborhood Schools Night
Meeting will be March 22 for Central, Cleveland, McKinley and Ramos Families
The Allentown School District will host its second meeting in a series of regional or neighborhood sessions focused on bringing parents/guardians/families, District Administrators, School Principals and community representatives together for discussion and information sharing. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 22 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Salvation Army, Allentown.
This session entitled “Your Neighborhood Schools Night” will be held specifically for the families of students (or incoming students) of Central, Cleveland, McKinley and Ramos Elementary Schools. Families are invited to enjoy a light dinner and discuss new things happening in the District, including plans for a new elementary school in their area. The session will be led by a community panel which includes Jose Molina, Hispanic American Organization and Alta Garcia Mercado, Urban Affairs Liaison for Senator Browne.
Free childcare will be provided for children ages 3 – 10 and Spanish interpreters will be on hand.
“The goal of these meetings is to ensure a direct open line of communication with our families as well as to keep them apprised on all the positive changes happening in our District,” explains Dr. Gary R. Cooper, Interim Superintendent for the Allentown School District. “We want our parents and guardians to have a voice and welcome the opportunity to respond to their questions and concerns. If we all work together toward our common goal of their student’s success, we can make a tremendous impact.”
The Salvation Army is located at 144 North 8th Street, Allentown.
