Parent Family Engagement Series

  • Parent Family EngagementAt AGCS, we strive to build genuine relationships with our students and their families. Relationships with families support overall family well-being and children's healthy development. When families are engaged, partnerships are created that have a common focus – helping children grow and thrive.

    We realize that the current social distancing requirements can be stressful, at best. The global pandemic requires us to re-think how we do even the most normal, everyday tasks and how we navigate it all safely with our children.

    To help support our rock star parents through this time, we're offering a free series of Parent Family Engagement Workshops on a variety of topics. We look forward to your joining us!

     

Upcoming Workshops

  • PBIS at Home

    September 15, 2021, 7:00-8:00 PM
    Please RSVP to receive a Zoom link to this virtual event
    Beth Socha, AGCS Schoolwide Positive Behavior Consultant

    Learn how to carry over our AGCS PACK values in your own home. Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered framework for improving and integrating all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. It is a way to create the kinds of schools where all students are successful. It is a commitment to addressing student behavior through systems change. When it’s implemented well, students achieve improved social and academic outcomes, schools experience reduced exclusionary discipline practices, and school personnel feel more effective.

    This session will be an overview as well as tips and tricks for getting back into a morning routine.
