In my last blog I talked about the value of community service. This time I wanted to continue with another aspect of our school community – the parent community. Our parents are a vital part of the life, success, and energy of Warren-Walker School.
Over the last few months the evidence of parent involvement has been overwhelming. We had parents give of their time to talk to current and prospective parents at the Middle School Open House. The Middle School All Star Fundraiser was a casual social event at the Brickyard batting cages which was an extremely successful parent party. Point Loma and La Mesa parents had a dazzling daughter dances. Both Lower School campuses had the APEX run. The list goes on…
One of my favorite community events brings families of all three campuses together for a day of holiday spirit. Middle School invites the 4th and 5th grades to sing at our band concert. The WWPA provides a lovely holiday tea for the two performances. Always a special day.
What each of these has in common is the desire of parents to enhance their child’s experience and be involved in the community of Warren-Walker School.
Some of the surprising benefits are the lasting friendships the parents make – nothing like getting to know someone while you’re flipping pancakes!
Engaged parents equal successful students. Whether you are helping in the library, heading a committee, or supporting a WWPA activity, your presence matters.
Thank you for being an active part of our school community.
