Parents of the Week Award

Increasing family and community engagement by 100 percent at Melrose

The Parent Support for Education Council, Inc. (PSFEC) continues its efforts to form a solid partnership to increase family engagement at Melrose Elementary. A major focus in the partnership is increasing family/school relationships.

When the community and school join together, all things including academics, discipline and attendance improve and students succeed. Family engagement strategies and activities are currently being planned. Call Pastor Rainey to join or support at (727) 420-1326).

One of the initiatives includes the parent award that is designed to celebrate family-parent engagement. The award is not a contest nor is it competitive; rather it’s an effort to bring attention the unsung heroes (parents, grandparents, family members and friends) who have a compassionate interest in the success of children.

Mrs. Lyons, you certainly seem to have your children’s success in mind. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.
