Education + Community
Connect to YOUR Community!
School Connect connects you to the powerful and diverse support of community partners through programs, events, grants, and campaigns. We amplify your strategic plan for your schools by galvanizing the community to help you accomplish these goals, bringing resources and support to your school communities and your neighborhoods. We share your powerful stories to advocate for the students and families you serve.

What We Have In Common
We tend to think of schools, businesses, churches, government offices, and hospitals as separate entities. But the same children and families live, work, worship, vote, and visit the doctor, often in the same few square miles! By inviting the community to participate in Love Our Schools Days and CAFEs, you can build relationship with your community and find people and organizations who share your goals and have a vested interest in your students’ success!
Teaching Is Most Effective When Connected to Community!
A finalist for the School Connect Hero Make Award, Mrs. Vargas credits her success to the “Village” around her. As she connects with her students’ families, Mrs. Vargas finds she is able to teach even more effectively. We all need our community!
Join Our Village
Doing this alone is impossible; it takes all of us working together to make a difference.
