Piccolo’s mission involves
students, staff, parents and the community working together as partners to
improve academic achievement in all areas with an emphasis on literacy. The
entire school community will provide a safe nurturing learning environment that
motivates all students, including students with special needs, to reach their
highest potential through a combination of diverse and effective learning
practices. These include professional development, parent trainings,
partnerships, and other social resources that help to develop the whole child.
Community Parents, We Need You
Here is a new
opportunity to help other parents in your neighborhood as part of the Parent
Leadership in Action (PLAN) component of the Governor’s Neighborhood
Recovery Initiative (NRI), a comprehensive effort to reduce youth violence and
increase adult engagement and leadership here in the Chicago area. Nearly 1,000
Chicago-area parents will soon be doing parent-to-parent education and community
outreach as members of PLAN. They will be holding important dialogues about how
we can “take back the village,” begin to recover from decades of violence and
save our youth from
the streets by surrounding them with caring adults.
If you have been “through the fire” in
dealing with your own issues and have recently navigated the tricky waters and
challenges of raising an adolescent (ages 12 to 17 within the last three years),
PLAN training and membership may be for you!
now have several new openings for temporary, part-time PLAN Members
(working evenings and weekends).
These paid positions would be a great way for you to help parents
struggling to raise children in challenging environments and times and
contribute to a unique effort dedicated to making our community stronger and
better connected to resources.
PLAN offers a
full training program to support you as an effective, “go-to” community resource
for other parents in your neighborhood. We provide you with leadership
training, background on the project’s discussion (messages) areas, and training
on violence prevention strategies and other protective factors. If you are
interested in joining the PLAN team, you are first required to attend an
orientation session (see information below).
