“Family Involvement PLUS is a way to bring staff, students and families together to learn more about important topics and each another over food. Homewood's Family Involvement Team has been committed to building relationships with our families outside of the typical school day. We host events three times a year, featuring dinner, student performances, team-building activities and classroom visits. Family Involvement PLUS would increase the number of times we host events for our families and hold them on a smaller scale, inviting targeted groups to enjoy a meal at school while sharing information on a variety of high-interest topics.”
