Parent Educator Corner:

September 28, 2010

Greeting Dubois Elementary Parents/Guardians,

My name is Carlis Thomas and I am the new parent educator here at Dubois Elementary School. I was previously the Parent Educator at Hazel Dell Elementary School. I look forward to getting to know all of you as the school year continues. As a parent educator, I will assist Dubois families to enhance and promote school/family partnerships. Here are a few ways in which I will serve your family as a parent educator:

~ Inform and coordinate family workshops and activities during the school year
~ Provide Educational resources to assist you in meeting the needs of your child
~ Be a communication link between home and school
~ Make home visits
~ Provide information and make referrals for community resources available to your family.

Working together as a team, we can provide the added support needed for every child to succeed. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 217-525-3204. My office hours are Monday-Thursday 8:30am-3: 30pm.

“There are many things you can do to ensure that your child has a successful life. Although some things are difficult and time consuming, you won’t be doing them forever. Children grow quickly. Make a commitment to be a motivational force in their lives. You or your child do not have to accept failure, you and your child can select another option…
success.” Kay Taylor

Your child’s future is in your hands.

Thank you,

Carlis Thomas
