Ms. Gordon is the recipient of the Maryland PTA Lifetime Achievement Award, the highest recognition bestowed by the PTA and given to only those who have demonstrated outstanding service in support of our students, schools, and communities. As a Parent Community Coordinator at Burnt Mills, Oakview and New Hampshire Estates Elementary Schools, Ms. Gordon is responsible for helping to build and strengthen positive relationships with families, guiding them through the school system, and increasing their confidence and skills to advocate for their children. Her commitment to the education and well-being of our students deserves acknowledgement. "Do the job with passion or not at all," is her guiding philosophy and it shows!
The Division of Student, Family, and School Services, working with schools, families and the community, is dedicated to promoting the shared responsibility and mutual process of engaging families in meaningful and culturally appropriate ways to foster student learning and development.
We work to ensure families have the tools and opportunities to be active and effective partners in their children's school experience; and support schools and community partners in building family-school partnerships to support learning opportunities in the classroom, community, and at home.
We believe that all families, schools, and the community can work together to help students achieve academic proficiency and college and career readiness by:
