FIRST is a parent enrichment program that is designed to support Independence families and students and inspire community. Our goal is to enrich parents on current events/trends pertinent to our children and our roles as parents and educators. Throughout the year, we will be offering a book club and blog, parent education seminars, and family activities. By providing Independence families with opportunities for learning and deepening of knowledge, we aim to help build a strong community of parents and teachers. Thus, we hope to bring further insight and knowledge to the vitally important task of parenting, while creating a common vision and understanding to help us in our working together in support of our children.
