Parent Involvement Coordinator
My Name is Helen Kirksey and I am honored to be the Parent Involvement coordinator for Needwood.
My job is to be a liaison between the home and school. I am here to help parents and teachers to connect and build positive relationships. I am available to offer the following variety of services to parents, grandparents and guardians in order to assist you to fully participate in the education of your child.
- attend parent/teacher conferences
- coach you on the use of Infinite Campus which allows you to monitor your child grades, assignments and attendance
- assist you in locating materials and resources for you to use at home with your child
- provide home visits
- make workshops available for parents in Math, Reading, How to Help with Homework, Writing, etc.
The Parent Resource Room is located beside the media center. Pick up your visitor pass at the front office and come by for a visit or give me a call.
There are several activities to do in the parent resources room as well as materials to borrow and take home to work with your child. Example: brochures on parenting, books and hand out Study buddies. Visit the family resource center located in the front hub across from the nurse's office and see how learning can be fun and rewarding. We are open from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm Monday though Friday.
