HELLO.... WILDCAT FAMILIES!
I'm Ms. Kim your Parent Liaison! I work in our fantastic Family Resource Center that I would just love to share with you!
The Family Resource Center is filled with all sorts of books, including workbooks for all grade levels, reading books, self-help and more. New this year are easy to read and understand books on parenting subjects such as divorce, weight-loss, moving, and new siblings. In addition to books, we have tons of activities, games and manipulatives that you can check out and use at home with your kids. Flash cards for math, sight words, alphabet, and colors, math games, and puzzlies. For our preschoolers, we have books on tape, puzzles and Pre-K workbooks that will help with learning colors, numbers and the alphabet.
Next time you are at LGE having lunch or picking up your child, stop by the Family Resource Center located directly across from the front office in Room #1.
The PRR was specially-designed for parents as a place to:
- receive free informational brochures about education, child development, and parenting;
- to borrow books with tapes to read/listen with your child;
- to attend free parent workshops on topics of relevance to enhance your child's learning;
- to attend PTO meetings,
- to attend free community workshops on interesting and helpful topics,
- to network with other parents
- to check out resources to use with your children at home.
