Parents & Families

Parents Association

Q417 looks forward to having interested parents form and join its Parent Association. Parents contribute enormously to the dynamism of the school, and we welcome your ideas, energy, talents and contributions. The Parent Association helps with the following:

1. Assisting administration and staff in providing varied enrichment programs for students.
2. Providing educational programs for parents.
3. Providing an avenue for communication among parents, teachers, administration and teachers.

All parents and guardians of current students are members of the Parents Association. Members can attend and participate in all meetings and activities of the Parents Association. We are aware that all of our parents are occupied with the demands of everyday life, but a small contribution of your time and energy can contribute significantly to our efforts to cultivate a nurturing educational environment for our community. If you are interested in participating in the Parents Association, please email us at PA@Q417.org.

School Leadership Team

We look forward to forming our School Leadership Team (SLT).  SLT works as a collaborative unit of parents, faculty, staff and partners to ensure that all of our students graduate with academic, social and emotional skills to be successful in anything they set out to do, including in college and career.  SLT will meet monthly, with the intention to share school updates, review and discuss school policies, make suggestions and recommendations for school improvement.

Additional Opportunities

We look forward to hosting the following:

1. Parent Information Sessions: These workshops and seminars support parents with timely topics and specific next steps to improve student outcomes.

2. Advisory Parent Focus Groups: Small group meetings to discuss specific concerns, challenges and celebrations.  The group will meet three times this coming school year, in October, January and May.

3. Parent Office Hours: One-on-one meetings to discuss specific student concerns.
