Thanks to you, Proud Patriot Parents (P3) completed its first year of engagement with many exciting opportunities to create a unified, welcoming, and inclusive school culture.
With invitations to participate in Patriot Pride, Parent Voice, Academic Support and Mentoring, Special Events, and Community Engagement, hundreds of members of the GW community shared their positive energy and ideas to help advocate for the success of GWHS students and families.
We look forward to your continued support of P3 as we help our GW scholars reach their goals. Please join us for a year-end P3 Celebrations and Reflections meeting on Wednesday, May 3 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at GW. We will honor one deserving volunteer with the Patriot Prize, review survey feedback, and look ahead to P3 priorities and opportunities in 2017-2018.
Thank you to the community of parents, guardians and community members who helped P3 “take off” this year. With a look ahead to 2017-2018, P3 welcomes your feedback. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts with us by completing our year-end survey by April 28, 2017.
