January Update – Parent Facilitator

Dear CHS Families,

I hope you all had a nice relaxing time during the holidays. Now we are back to school and many meetings and workshops are taking place in the district. The superintendent Dr. Pamela Brown is having her 3rd roundtable meeting at Herman Badillo Bilingual Academy on January 15, 6-7:30pm. The topic of this session will be “Increasing involvement through Technology” I recommend every parent to attend these meetings and ask questions to Dr. Brown and her team about his/her specific issues face to face. It is a great opportunity to talk to the superintendent and experts in those settings.

For parents who are thinking of getting involved , serve actively on parent run organizations there’ll be two training sessions (both the same, you can attend one of them according to your availability) January 17 at Southside Elementary #93 9-11am  or January 23 Stanley Makowski #99 6-8pm In this training you will;

– Learn how to identify strengths in yourself and other parents that will support our students and schools
– Get practical advice for organizing and empowering parents in classrooms,schools and the community
– Get connected with other parents and resources that will help you be more effective in your work as a parent leader and advocate.

Please send me an email if you would like to sign up for these workshops, so I can register you.

At the end of January, I will be sending a climate survey with your child home. Please fill it out and send it back to school addressed to “Parent Facilitator” We are trying to have your input in developing efficient communication between parents and the school.

Last but not least, Buffalo Board of Education will have 6 seats opening this term and the election is on May 7th.  It is important to know about the candidates and participate in voting since they will representing your district and making decisions for the education system. Buffalo school district gets almost $1 Billion a year and it is good to know who is managing that budget and making policies. You can get the information from buffaloschools.org

I will continue to be at school on Tuesdays 8-10am and Wednesdays 12:30-14:30pm at the parent room. You can come and talk to me if you need information or have questions.
You can always reach me via email at minedos@hotmail.com any day of the week.

Best wishes,

Mine Dosluoglu
Parent Facilitator
