At UME Prep, we believe it is vital for parents to be involved in their children’s lives, and we understand that all parents face their own, unique set of circumstances and challenges in raising and educating their children. We know, too, that many parents may feel overwhelmed, lost, or lacking confidence that they have the knowledge, skill, or ability necessary to be involved. Believing, also, that parental support and involvement offer benefits difficult to replicate through other avenues, the Parent Equipping Program (PEP) will help interested parents acquire the knowledge and develop the skills needed to meet the challenge of increasing the rate, type, and quality of their involvement in their child's academic experience.
As we journey together through the 2014-2015 school year, please take note of some of the offerings we will be making available to our parents this year. Please see our UME Prep calendar and schedule for more information about upcoming events.
We look forward to serving you and working alongside you this year!
