Vaughn Parents Experience a Day in the Life of their Children
Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day is a long-lived American tradition that allows children to experience what their parents do at work each day. But, some APS schools have turned the tables for parents to see what a day at school is like for their children.
Vaughn Elementary School hosted its fourth annual Bring Your Parents to School Day. Parents enjoyed meeting school staff, observing their children’s classrooms during instructional time and getting to know one another. They learned more about the district, the school and how to successfully plan for their students’ academic futures.
“Vaughn started this tradition to give parents a glimpse into all that is asked of their children during the school day,” said Vaughn Family Liaison, Minnie Pescador. “We are fostering relationships with parents and assisting them in helping their children reach academic excellence.”
Although the event was centered on parent involvement, Vaughn also extended the invitation to community members as they are key components in student success. A few Aurora Police Department officers and members of the Optimist Club of Aurora visited the school to spend time with students.
APS applauds the transparency of Vaughn and other APS schools that have opened their doors to parents and the community in such a way. This level of engagement cultivates a deeper sense of trust and teamwork between students, parents, staff and the community.
