For parents at Everett Middle School, technology is becoming a larger and larger part of their student’s education. Papers are composed on googledocs, research is done entirely on the internet, and teacher communications often happen via email.
Understanding many parents lack of exposure to technology in their own lives, the Parent Partner Program is finding new ways to support family engagement through technology.
Through a generous computer donation from LULAC and Facebook, the Parent Technology Center had an open house celebration, inviting Everett Middle School Lisa VanHaren, parent leaders, and community members to join in celebrating this new access point for family technology.
The event is a step in a very important direction for Mission families as they adopt technology into all aspects of their lives. To hear more on the importance of gaining technology skills for our parent leaders, check out the Univision video highlighting this event.
