Please join us for our next PUSH meeting Julia Freeman, Senior Organizer with Voices for Racial Justice will present a brief overview of the Education Equity Project, which provides tools for parents, students, administrators and teachers to address systemic barriers that can prevent our students from reaching their potential.  Hearing from parents and students about their own experiences of the barriers to equity in education is an important step towards developing solutions together.  Please join us for a safe, honest conversation about equity in our schools.  Your voice is needed!"

Por favor, únese a nosotros para nuestra próxima reunión de PUSH, con Julia Freeman, como organizadora principal de Voces por la Justicia Racial que presentará una breve reseña del Proyecto Educativo EQUITY, que proporciona herramientas para padres, estudiantes, administradores y maestros para abordar las barreras sistémicas que pueden impedir que nuestros estudiantes  alcanzen su potencial. Oyendo de los padres y estudiantes acerca de sus propias experiencias de las barreras a la equidad en la educación, es un paso importante hacia el desarrollo de soluciones juntos. Por favor, únase a nosotros para una conversación segura, honesta acerca de la equidad en nuestras escuelas.  Su voz es necesaria!

Get Involved!

Connecting and working together as parents is a good way to support our students and the school. PUSH needs parent leadership for the 2015-2016 school year, and we invite you to get involved. Meetings are in the South High Media Center on the second Monday of each month, with a light dinner at 6 pm followed by the meeting at 6:30 pm.

PUSH is an important resource and a powerful way for parents to connect with other parents, school administration and the school community as a whole. PUSH is much more than a booster club for South—our mission is to support communication between home and school; to encourage parents/guardians to be involved at South; to educate ourselves on topics of interest as parents; and to create ways for every family and student to have a social connection to the school community and feel a valued member and participant within it!

Your role as a PUSH leader will be to collaborate and help decide what topics are important to cover for our families.
