 We are excited to announce that we have a new staff position on our team this year....PORTER PARENT LIAISON!  And, she is looking forward to meeting and working with all of you. Mrs. Beverly Johnson, who most of you know as our Library Media Assistant, has excepted the challenge of being Porter's first parent liaison.   

Parent liaisons help build a strong relationship between home, school, parents, teachers, students, and the school community to create a positive network of caring adults, ensure the needs of each student are met, and have the support and services needed for academic success. It can be challenging for parents to visit the school during workdays and to know what educational support and resources are available to them. We understand there may be linguistic and cultural barriers that prevent parents from being engaged, we will work together to overcome these barriers.

We'd like to share more about the position and Mrs. Johnson, please use the link below to find out how her services can possibly help you, your family, and your student:
