Aug 22, 2018


At S. Huntington's Parent University, we understand the importance of building a strong and supportive school-home connection. Our dedicated team is committed to creating a comprehensive support system that enhances educational outcomes and fosters community engagement. Through our innovative programs and services, we aim to bridge the gap between schools and families, ensuring that every child receives the best possible education.

The Importance of a School-Home Connection

A strong school-home connection plays a vital role in a child's academic success. Research has shown that when parents actively participate in their child's education, it leads to improved grades, higher graduation rates, and increased confidence. However, we recognize that many families face barriers in engaging with their child's school due to various reasons such as limited time, language barriers, or lack of awareness about available resources.

Addressing the Challenges

At S. Huntington's Parent University, we have developed a range of programs and services that address these challenges, empowering parents and caregivers to actively support their child's learning journey. By fostering a supportive environment, we strive to break down barriers and ensure that every family has access to the resources and support they need.

Community Events and Activities

We believe in fostering a sense of community among our school families. Throughout the year, we organize various events and activities, ranging from family picnics to educational field trips. These gatherings provide opportunities for parents, students, and teachers to interact, share experiences, and build relationships.

In today's digital era, we understand the importance of providing online learning resources.
