Teamwork and Education

By Debbie Reeder

When you think of teamwork and education, it is impossible not to think of programs like Central Valley’s SPACE program. SPACE stands for Student, Parent Alternative Classroom Experience which focuses on the partnerships that are built between the school and families registered in the program. Parents agree to participate in school activities and fund-raise money to provide educational enhancements throughout the year.

Something that is truly unique about this program is the friendships that form between the students in the classrooms and parents supporting the school through the activities. This program gives teachers the ability work closely with students, as parents volunteer in the classroom on a regular basis.  

As a team of parents, teachers, students and administers there is an unbelievable amount of support for each other and the school. Students might not always realize the benefits they are receiving in the program but the parents will feel the extra commitment of like-minded parents as they move from grade to grade together.
