    Nuestra Misión

    Crear un espacio amigable y de confianza para las familias de la Escuela Primaria Emerson,  donde podamos expresar nuestras ideas, necesidades y preocupaciones con respecto a la educación de nuestro hijos.

    Construir una comunidad escolar que permita incrementar la comunicación entre la escuela y las familias con el fin de que nuestros estudiantes sean exitosos en su educación.



    Natural Leaders serve as multi-cultural bridge between students, families, communities, and schools.


    Research has consistently shown students’ success to be highly correlated with the level of their parent engagement. When parents are involved, students achieve more, regardless of socio-economic status, ethnic/racial background, or the parents’ education level.

    Parent engagement programs are oftentimes top-down school-directed training programs that teach parents how to help their kids succeed in their education. These programs are designed in ways that are assumed to be best for families, however we don’t always know what would be best without centering family voices first. The WABS Natural Leaders Program takes a different approach.

    The Natural Leaders Program uses an asset-based model to help families identify and cultivate the skills necessary to overcome systemic barriers. Parents take on leadership roles in order to build stronger relationships with families and their children and identify best practices. They then take action in order to help families be successful in the school system and implement their ideas in partnership with the school.

    You can be part of this group and support your student by becoming engage in your child’s education.

    We are looking forward to collaborating with you, join us!

    ¡Estamos emocionados de colaborar con usted y su familia, únase a nosotros!
