233 parents graduate and celebrate their partnerships
Today, 233 Klein ISD parents and family members graduated and celebrated their commitment to their students and their education.
This year’s class of grads includes participants from the entire Klein Forest feeder pattern including Klein Forest High School, Klein and Wunderlich intermediates, and Eiland, Epps Island, Greenwood Forest, Kaiser, Klenk, McDougle and Nitsch elementaries, and the Grace England Early Childhood and Pre-K Center.
The Parent University initiative originated at Klein Intermediate and looks to empower families to actively participate in their student’s education by engaging in meaningful partnerships with the schools and support the Klein ISD vision that every student enters with a promise and exits with a purpose.
Parents and family members who participate in Parent University attend sessions of their choosing in three categories, academics — courses designed to help parents understand course material, health and wellness — courses designed to provide information about proper nutrition, home environment, adequate sleep, mental and social wellness and more, personal growth and development — courses providing families with opportunities to build upon their own skills for personal and professionals growth.
To graduate, participants had to attend at least five sessions during the school year. This year, more than 1,000 parents attended sessions for Parent University.
Help us celebrate these Promise2Purpose Investors and their work and dedication to their student and to every student who is entering with a promise and exiting with a purpose.
