Supporting the parents of Metro students through seminars, classes and community!
EVERY NIGHT THAT YOUR STUDENT IS AT METRO, PARENTS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN PETRA JAIME, THE PROGRAM DIRECTOR AND IVETTE GUDINO THE PROGRAM MANAGER, IN THE PARENT CENTER FOR PARENTING DISCUSSIONS, SPEAKERS, AND OTHER HELPFUL PARENTING RESOURCES.
Parents are integral to the development of their daughters, and at Metro we work as a team to encourage students' overall growth. Once a semester, Parents are asked to attend an evening at Metro focused on this growth.
The Parent Night will include:
A Parenting Talk on hot topics such as : communication with our children, technology and media exposure, and much more.
Volunteer Parent Meetings: a chance to check in with your daughter's tutor/mentor.
Parents are invited to stay at Metro the evening their daughter attends program and join other parents in discussing relevant parent topics while enjoying the community of other Metro parents.
Annual Parent Conference
Each spring, parents of Midtown and Metro are encouraged to attend this informational and engaging conference centered around the role of the Parent. In addition to mini sessions on various parenting topics, the day includes a main speaker who specializes in Parent Education.
At Metro, parents are not only important but are celebrated for their hard work. Each year, Metro celebrates with a Father-Daughter day in the fall and a Mother-Daughter Day in the spring. Students come with their Mother or Father to learn how to grow, reflect on their importance and celebrate.
Community is a big part of the program, and there are many opportunities to get to know fellow Metro families throughout the year. Families are invited to join us at the Family Picnic during the summertime.
