Principal's Message

Lawton Chiles Families and Community Members,

We have had a great first couple of weeks of October! Last week we had our monthly SAC and PTA meetings and I was able to meet our new PTA president, Ms. Andrea Ewers. I know the last year and a half has made it difficult for the PTA to organize, but Ms. Ewers and her team have an ambitious agenda for the year and I am excited to work with them. Dr. Karen Mapp of the Harvard Graduate School of Education has done extensive research into the effect of family engagement on the education of children and found that, “the evidence is consistent, positive, and convincing: families have a major influence on their children’s achievement in school and through life.” Dr. Mapp goes on to suggest that families and community members act as, “co-creators and co-producers of the excellent schools and learning opportunities that we want for all of our students.” With that in mind, I want to encourage you to get involved with the PTA as much as possible. Throughout the school year, there will be many opportunities to engage yourself in PTA activities, including a membership drive that is going on right now!  If you have any questions about PTA membership, please contact Ms. Ewers at [email protected].

Thank you for reading!
