are the most important partners any school can have.
They volunteer in classrooms and at school events, as
coaches and chaperones, as mentors and role models.
They bake. They read. They listen. They are there in good
times and bad.
The City School District of Albany is proud to recognize
all of those parental role models who invest their time and talent to
help students succeed.
Parents. Grandparents. Guardians. Caring parents like
Wendy Milligan, pictured here.
They also are grandmothers
like Marcella Green, who
was featured in a December
WNYT/TV 13 story about her efforts as a volunteer at North Albany
The district is proud to highlight -- both here and in
the 2009-10 annual calendar -- examples from each school whose
contributions made a difference in 2008-09. Some work quietly behind the
scenes. Some take charge and lead the way. All are shining examples –
for their children, first and foremost, but for all children and the
school community as well.
"Parent Champions" carry a
message shared by thousands of their peers
throughout the district. They are
linked by their enthusiasm for the great
opportunities available to all students in Albany's
public schools, and their tireless commitment to our
students, teachers and school community.
understand and support our mission to educate and nurture all students to be responsible citizens,
critical thinkers and lifelong learners.
We hope you will enjoy learning more
about these individuals, and, through their voices
and experiences, about the vibrant
school district they support.
