Last night, the Airport Heights Campfire Team hosted a Community Cafe. Parents, Campfire Staff, and School Staff got together to take a look at the community and how we can serve our families.
Campfire Site Director, Myrna DeCota Said, “I just think the parents really engaged. It was more than I hoped for. It was good for parents to get together and talk about the kids.”
One element of the Cafe that parents really appreciated was the child care the was provided. One parent commented that she’d really like to get more involved with events like this, but it is just not possible when you’ve got kids.
While the parents were meeting in the library, the kids were having a Community Cafe of their own. They worked as a team and made a model community out of clay.
Thanks to everyone that participated in this terrific event. Campfire is planning on more of these events next year and the school leadership team is going to look at this model as a way of getting parent input on school initiatives and improvement plans.
