Education Committee, Fern Ray, Chairperson
Committee focuses on Educational opportunities for Adults and Youth in Park Mesa Heights.
The Students Deserve organization has been fighting on behalf of our students. You can find them:
Issues that we are concerned about include: Criminalizing of students through searches. This preview video introduces the problem in our schools. We encourage you to watch the whole show.
Research has found that deeper learning can be achieved through authentic curricula and assessments, wrap-around services that address student social and emotional needs, and supportive, skill-building environments for educators.
The PMHCC Education Committee is concerned about criminalizing students through searches and about math deficiencies in our classrooms. Check out this video.
Whether you are a nurse, mechanic, astronaut, custodian or business owner- we need you! We are looking for a variety of people interested in spending time talking to our students about their career.
PMHCC supports Dynasty's Youth who is doing a great job helping our students with math, writing, social skills and more at the Hyde Park Library. If your student needs help, check it out on Thursdays.
Comprehensive recommendations included tackling access to guns and access to mental health resources; how schools are designed and how threats are reported; conditions on campus and in surrounding neighborhoods.
The Park Mesa Heights Community Council is excited to report that we are providing backpacks filled with school supplies and lunch bags for elementary school children in our community.
