On September 29th, families of our students were greeted by the Fonseca staff into the Fonseca community. The faculty members of each NEA Change Team displayed the work they do focused on Student Support, Arts, Academic Engagement, Attendance, Health and Wellness, Data Analysis and Parent Outreach. Ms. Lisi welcomed Fonseca families with a brief presentation, highlighting that when collaboration occurs between school and home, children have a positive and successful experience in school. Families visited classrooms to see and hear what students are learning. A great night was had by all!
