Parent Family Engagement Series
At 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!
