Vista Academy believes that family involvement in school activities plays an important role in the success of the student. Vista Academy offers GED classes, citizenship classes and even cooking classes to the parents through their Parent University program. Most recently, Vista Academy hosted a Thanksgiving celebration for students, their family and staff. The amazing part is that the entire meal was prepared and served by students in Vista Academy’s culinary program.
Families were able to come and experience a delicious meal in addition to being able to actually see the result of the students’ hard work! As AmeriCorps members, we will continue to promote this type sentiment of family and community involvement through our service projects and daily interactions with families and students. Through this service, we will continue to see students make strives in their academic successes and help bring families closer together.
