Our March Parent Boosters meeting included enthusiastic parents, scholars, and staff. Guest speaker Tonya Reeves (a former IDEA staff member) of the East River Family Strengthening Collaborative (ERFSC) talked about how parents and children can communicate with each other more effectively. Ms. Reeves and her ERFSC colleague Dr. Green shared information and resources offered by ERFSC including parenting classes.
Nasser Muhammad of educational consulting firm Lifting as We Climb also spoke about educational resources including tutoring, scholarship search assistance, and overall academic support.
We look forward to our next meeting on April 6 where Principal McCrae will share IDEA's vision for 2019-20 in conjunction with members of our board of directors.
