At Barack Obama/SCTE, we value our parents and families as significant supporters of a child’s education. We realize that parents are the first educators in a child’s life, teaching them daily tasks and encouraging an interest in learning long before children attend school. Therefore, we recognize family involvement as essential for positive student growth and success.
Meetings are usually held the first Thursday of the month. Each PTSA meeting has a topic or focus. The PTSA helps to organize family events and can connect you with other ways to get involved as well. just show up at a monthly meeting! Contact Ms. Lewis, the parent coordinator, at (414) 393-5093.
School Governance Council
The School Governance Council is an elected group of parents and staff who participate in key decisions regarding budget and educational meetings. Come share in the discussion; we want your involvement! The Council generally meets the second Wednesday of the month from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. (right before the PTSA).
Our school newsletter, is sent home at the beginning of every month. It highlights important events and program updates. Also, Tuesday folders are sent home weekly. They feature information regarding school business. Parents of students in grades 1-8 receive quarterly progress reports and are encouraged to attend parent/teacher conferences once each semester. Barack Obama’s open door policy affords parents the opportunity to visit our school whenever necessary. We welcome parents to visit our staff and discuss their child’s progress whenever the need may arise. Staff members and administration collaborate with parents in the development of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for students with disabilities. They also cooperate with parents and families to address the needs of all regular education students.
