At the school I managed Parent Engagement, and Parent Advocacy from 20011-2014-- the school hosted weekly Community Circle Wednesday mornings immediately after arrival. All classes would sit in a large circle around the school gymnasium. We invited all parents, our co-located schools and other administrators to join! Each week every class would show their class pride, we would award "Reader of the Week", "Parent of the Week", "Improvement of the Week", celebrate birthdays for the week, and make weekly announcements. It was joyful event with music, and dancing. Parents would look forward to Community Circle-- it allowed for a moment of celebration, recognition and fun for everyone to partake in!
