Be Cool! Support Your School!
In early August, neighborhood leaders met with Everett public school principals and assistant principals to develop ideas to strengthen connections between schools, student families and the neighborhoods around them.
What we learned -- Volunteer tutors, mentors and donors can make all the difference to student success. Many families find they don't have all the supplies they need and teachers are preparing their classrooms on limited budgets. Donations of basic supplies or volunteer time to mentor a student or help in a classroom can make a big impact!
Want to help? Contact your local school to ask how to improve student success and build connections and community. Become an Everett Public Schools volunteer.
