Freese Elementary Opens New Parent Room

Freese Parent Room
Volunteers celebrate the new Parent Room at Freese.
Freese Elementary Arts and Culture School recently celebrated the grand opening of its new Parent Room, created to strengthen the home/school connection for students by providing parents a place to volunteer, hold workshops and conduct other activities.

The Parent Room offers space and materials for volunteers to complete projects, as well as access to computers and information relevant to parents. Maria Nixon serves as volunteer coordinator, matching teachers’ needs with parent volunteers.

With the support of Freese’s School Site Council, parent volunteers started the project in September and culminated with the grand opening celebration December 16.
