Supporting Success Through Partnership and Parent Engagement
At Zone 126, some of our most profound work includes engaging with children and families in our community. While there are many important tasks at hand, creating supportive systems for our families and seeing these systems utilized at family events are some of the most salient for us. Thus far in 2018, we’ve coordinated several events at CS 111Q designed to support our families and showcase our work.
To best support and engage our families, our events include a great deal of collaboration. A successful family event requires the work of Zone 126, our community partners, CS 111Q, and our parents and families.
We’ve had the privilege of working with both City Harvest and the Food Bank for New York City (FBNYC) in order to engage our families while also providing them with necessary services. With the collaboration of FBNYC, Zone 126 is able to run a free food pantry out of CS 111Q for scholars and their families. Our families not only shop in the pantry, but also become involved by helping stock shelves and make suggestions for food orders.
Ultimately, all of the family events we host have a primary focus: how can we best support the children in our locality and ensure they have all the building blocks they need to foster their own success? Bringing families into the fold of our work is not simply a rewarding experience for us, but also helps us to meet that goal. As an organization, we are aware that when it comes to children, it takes a village. Therefore, our best success comes from the collaboration of the schools we work in, our families, our partnerships, and our community.
