Family Engagement

At Center City, we know that family engagement is integral to student success.

We build relationships with families and involve them in our school communities through frequent communication, tools for supporting learning at home, and family events.

Frequent Communication. We keep parents informed about schoolwide events and activities as well as their children’s progress. We communicate with families by phone, email, newsletters, social media, and relationship building home/community visits.

Academic Support. We help families monitor and support their children’s learning at home. Our academic partnering models include strategies for sharing student data, establishing student goals, and providing families with activities to practice foundational skills with their children at home.

Family Events. We invite families to participate in several districtwide events throughout the school year, including the arts recital and service learning projects. Individual campuses also have their own family celebrations, events, and performances.

We also welcome parent volunteers. Please contact your campus to find out about opportunities, such as helping in classrooms and chaperoning field trips.

CCPCS will go virtual through Quarter 2

We’ve decided that Center City will continue to provide instruction through distance learning through the end of Quarter 2 (1/27/21). Special circumstances may require us to invite select students to campuses for targeted, in-person instruction*. We will continue to monitor the health data to determine if modifications to this decision are necessary.

We are just a few weeks away from the first day of school and are excited to welcome each of you back, virtually.
