Family and Community Engagement Committee

The Chambers PTA Family and Community Engagement Committee (FACE) is a parent-led committee focused on creating engagement and opportunities that highlight and promote our diverse community. We organized 2019’s Multicultural Festival, created a student-run newspaper in 2020, and hosted a series of successful virtual student playdates and family coffeehouses during the 2020-2021 school year, as well as discussions and trainings around diversity, equity and inclusion and a school board candidate forum. If you would like to take part in the FACE Committee this year, please email us at face@chambersprimarypta.com.

This year, FACE is introducing a Family to Family Resource Network: a place where you can go if you have questions about school life for your child that may go beyond the classroom. We can share our wisdom, learn from each other, and get to know each other better!

We’re looking for families who have experience with OR questions about:

  • Being new to the district/military family

  • English Language Learner program

  • Translation assistance for families

  • Handling allergies or medical conditions in school

  • IEPs and 504s

  • Experiencing prejudice/bullying

  • Highly Capable designation

  • Autism Spectrum Support Program

  • Reading or math struggles

  • Evaluations for speech or occupational therapy

  • Aftercare programs

  • And other ideas YOU might have

FACE will act as a liaison, connecting those who are looking for information with others who can share their knowledge. If you are interested in participating, please let us know by clicking the button above to fill out the interest form or emailing us at face@chambersprimarypta.com. You don’t need to be an expert to participate! Just be willing to share your experiences with others who might be going through the same thing.

FACE Discussion and Learning Group

 

This year we will be reading and discussing Jennifer Eberhardt’s book “Biased”. Eberhardt’s book focuses on the science and implications of societal and personal biases plus how we can change our behavior to help end our role in perpetuating the consequences of bias.
