Family Academic Day

by Amy Criswell

On Sept. 25, Dean MS hosted a Family Academic Day for families of students who receive additional support and specialized instruction. This annual event is held in an effort to inform parents about the services students receive throughout the year. More than 75 families attended.

Upon arrival, each family/student received a folder of resources to be utilized at home. This folder is individually personalized to notate the instructional programming the student is currently receiving on campus. Academic achievement specialists gave an overview of the services they offer. Families could view stations showcasing the programs facilitated by Campus Content Instructional Specialists, such as reading workshops, READ 180, math labs, Home Access Center, ESL classes and Title I, II and III grant funded interventions.

“Family Academic Day is a special time to engage our parents and share important information as we partner together to assist students in reaching their full potential," said Chris Hecker, Dean MS principal. "Having the opportunity to listen and share is rewarding and helps us better understand the needs of each family.”

Amy Criswell is the academic achievement specialist at Dean MS.
