Avalon Elementary School in the Northgate School District is remaking the way parents can engage in student creativity and learning.
The Parents as Allies project is training parents and guardians to serve as coaches in the school’s makerspace, offering them a unique chance to lead challenging activities that support traditional classroom learning. Through fun and insightful courses, parents in the program have been developing the skills needed to inspire through maker learning concepts.
