Leopold Elementary has been chosen as a Community School for the 2016-17 school year!
“Our Leopold team, which includes our dedicated staff, amazing students, committed families and collaborative community partners, has been working for years to try to bring community school strategies to our doors,” said Leopold Principal Karine Sloan. “Becoming a community school will greatly strengthen our efforts to meet the needs of our families, for whom we have the honor to serve. The outpouring of support from our community to have Leopold become one of the first sites has been wonderfully overwhelming. We thank everyone for supporting this effort and the selection committee for recognizing years of effort."
Community schools integrate programming and services that students, families and community members feel is needed — health care, academic tutoring, mentoring, food access, parent leadership opportunities and more — directly into schools, making them hubs of coordinated support.
