Family Resource Center
Mrs. Dianne Lewis, Parent Educator

 

 

The purpose of the Family Resource Center is to serve as a resource to parents and families in order to encourage and support children in their learning efforts.  Parents learn to work with their own children by learning what is taught to them in the regular school curriculum. The goals of the Family Resource Center have always been to:
 
  • Connect the home, school and community together

  • Help parents gain confidence and effectiveness in parental roles as their child's primary and most important nurturers, teachers and advocates
 
  •  Help parents gain effective linkage with education, health and human service agencies in St. Landry Parish and statewide
 
  • To provide new ways for parents, educators and children to work together
 
  •  To provide a supportive environment at school where parent involvement is encouraged
     
  • To provide an area where teachers can recommend and/or place suggested materials that will enrich their students' curriculum

  • To provide an interconnection between the school and businesses that shows their sincere interest in well-being of children and families

Special parenting workshops, individual families and/or group meetings, grade level materials, make and take activities, and home visits based on specific requests are also a valuable resource of the Family Resource Center under the supervision of Mrs. Patricia Mason-Guillory, Coordinator of Parent Involvement.
