Parents are a very important part of the Head Start Program, so important that in each school they have their own organization; the Parent Committee. The Parent Committee has regularly scheduled meetings throughout the school year where they discuss Early Childhood specific needs. Attendance of every parent is very important and strongly encouraged. What happens in these meetings is vital to what happens in the school.
This year the Burroughs Parent Committee with be collaborating with the PTO to address and support Early Childhood Education. We are looking for parents that are interested with working with ECE, the community and school leadership to make JBES the best learning environment for your children.
Mr. Trowers, Family Specialist, will serve as the representative for Early Childhood Education department with DC Public schools please contact him with any questions or concerns.
