An annual tradition of our SBL summer program is having a Parent Night, of which we had over 50 parents and their families attending on July 14 2016! Parent night is a great way for SBL staff, SBL mentors, and teachers to connect with parents about their child’s progress in the summer program. In addition, parents are divided into groups and are able to go to different stations to learn more about community perspectives, how to support students with Individualized Education Plans (I.E.P.S), parent engagement, course selection and streaming/destreaming.
Parents also get to learn more about the academic and social supports that SBL provides during the school day and the SBL after-school program at Westview! After the parent night presentations were finished and conversations were had, many parents still wanted to connect with SBL staff to ensure that their child is still connected with the program even if they are not attending Westview C.S.S.!
