Parent and Community Involvement

  • Parents, school staff and community members work closely together to manage our school. Parents are also welcome to become involved at any level of school activity, such as; visiting your child’s classroom, participating in school field trips, tutoring students, etc. Volunteerism is strongly recommended. It takes a village to educate a child!

    Everybody Wins Reading Program (first and second grades) - As the function of our partnership with the Minnesota Judicial Center, Supreme Court Justices, judges, attorneys, law clerks, secretaries, etc, visit our school weekly, have lunch with an identified student, and read to that student. This program is designed to help increase our students’ interest in reading and promote a positive self-esteem.

    We are lucky to have an Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) site in our building. Benjamin E. Mays and Rondo ECFE are joining forces to engage families in early childhood education. ECFE offers learning experiences for children birth to five, and opportunities for parents to network and grow their community.

    Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood (SPPN) Partner School

    The Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood (SPPN) uses education as a tool to end multi-generational poverty. SPPN is committed to addressing tough issues facing our community, including multi-generational poverty, the education opportunity gap, and other factors that influence a child's academic outcomes. Together with families, SPPN and its partners are focused on achieving the following results:

    • Children enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school
    • Students are proficient in core academic subjects
    • Students attend stable schools
    • Families and community members support learning in SPPN Partner Schools such as Benjamin E. Mays IB World School
    • Families live in stable communities
    • Children are healthy 
    • Parents and SPPN Partners have the power to influence public decisions that impact their lives

    SPPN partners with more than 80 organizations to create an effective continuum of academic and family wraparound supports.
