FAMILY ENGAGEMENT

We believe that family engagement, where strong partnerships exist between students, families, and STS, is a key element of ensuring long-term student success.  Elements of family engagement at STS include a fall and spring Family Potluck where all parents/families are welcome to discuss STS programs, provide feedback, and be given access to Town-wide resources and information that can best support their children.

The STS Parent Advisory Group is part of the Steps to Success leadership structure. Its members meet quarterly to help advocate for the program, reach out to other STS families, participate in fundraising activities, and play an active role in guiding programming.

We also host Family Nights in each of our extended learning programs three times per year, celebrate our students’ accomplishments through the annual end of year Recognition Ceremony, and welcome our students and families back to school at the Stepping Back to School event every August.
