Community Helping Youth Prepare for School

The event, though intended to help students prepare for the new school year, was really modeled with parents in mind. It was staffed by the principal and other administrative staff from the high school who brought with them all of the necessary school paperwork. The school staff also had the ability to settle accounts and receive payments for any fees required. Through this event, parents were also able to buy the “FASTPASS” at the discounted rate of $1 (normally $5). Most importantly, the event was held in the evening so as not to interfere with parents’ work schedules.

Roughly 50 families in all were able to attend and this program served as a model for the elementary and middle school registration events which occurred later that summer, preparing another 100 youth in that age range which live at the community.
