Parents Assisting Teachers: PAT

Parent Liaisons Host PAT Training

Parent Liaisons Dorothy Hampton of Northview ES and Sharon Breedon of Whitehall ES recently coordinated two very successful Parents Assisting Teachers (PAT) training classes. The first class was held on February 21 at Bowie City Hall, with more 50 parents in attendance. The class was conducted by Breedon and Johnna Lathan, a parent liaison at William Paca ES. The second PAT training was conducted at Northview ES on February 24, with an additional 15 parents attending the class. This session was led by Lathan and Sherlerina Garner of Hyattsville MS.

The Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Fingerprinting Unit was on site to fingerprint more than 30 parent volunteers. Thanks to these collaborative efforts, 55 parent volunteers are now prepared to assist teachers in the classroom and help meet the needs of students Fred Lewis, Manager of Giant Food at Collington Plaza, and Kau Shik, Manager of the Subway Sandwich Shop at Bowie Town Center, aided in the success of the event by providing refreshments for participants.
