Mr. Kelly’s Coffees

This year Mr. Kelly will again host parent coffees. These coffees are planned monthly (schedule follows) for the remainder of the school year and are informal get togethers for parents, families and community members. There is no formal agenda as the purpose is to provide opportunities for folks to talk with Mr. Kelly, ask questions, and share concerns.

Last year’s series was a great success. Through these conversations topics like class size, budget, and long term strategic planning were discussed. These were great conversations as they allowed Mr. Kelly to better understand the perspective of parents and the community on issues impacting the school while providing an occasion to dive deeply into the laws, regulations, and contexts that are often the reasons for the issues and concerns raised by the community.

Building this common understanding of ongoing school improvement efforts, the contexts in which they exist, and their perceptions within the community is critically important to our community as Ben-Hem seeks to provide educational opportunities for students that maximize opportunities to learn in a manner that is consistent with the values and goals of the parent and family community. We hope that you will take the opportunity to join us!
