Yesterday, 268 Klein ISD parents and family members graduated from Parent University, signifying their unwavering commitment and dedication to their students and their educational success.
Originating at Klein Intermediate in the 2013-2014 school year, Parent University has since grown as more families realize the positive impacts that active family involvement in education have on a learner’s journey and, ultimately, their achievement.
“When I see this, my first emotion is gratefulness,” Parent University Founding Principal, now Vistas High School Principal, Bob Anderson said. “Seeing this is one of the biggest honors in my career.”
The 2019 Parent University graduating class consisted of participants from Klein Forest High School, Klein and Wunderlich intermediates, Epps Island, Eiland, Greenwood Forest, Mahaffey, Blackshear, Bernshausen, Kaiser, Klenk, McDougle, and Nitsch elementary schools, and the Grace England Early Childhood and Pre-K Center.
Graduates engaged in a certain number of sessions related to academics, health and wellness, and personal growth & development.
“This is my second year to participate in Parent University and it has been a very helpful and rewarding experience,” Parent University Graduate from McDougle Cristina Alvarez said. “The events and workshops always provided important information on how to help my son with his education as well as how to better communicate with the teachers and staff at his school.”
Of the graduating class, 58 proudly received a Master’s distinction for going above and beyond.
Help us congratulate and celebrate these graduates for their efforts to empower their students from promise to purpose!
