The CHEC Parent Center


.....is a place where parents learn about the curriculum, community resources, communicating with teachers and school personnel, and ways to support student learning at home.

The Parent Center is comprised of a middle and high school gathering space with a dedicated staff and is open to all parents and guardians. Both gathering spaces are located on the first floor of our building, Room A for Bell and Room for Lincoln. The Center is designed to provide the strongest level of support to our students and families by strengthening parent and community involvement on campus With dedicated personnel for both the middle and high school, parents learn about the importance of the social and emotional well-being of students as well as strategies and resources to support their development. The knowledge and skills that parents acquire at the Parent Center prepare them to be successful in their roles as their children's first and life-long teachers and advocates.
