At John Kelley we have great parent support!  We have a part time Parent Liaison that is a great support and resource for our parents.  Please visit our Parent Center to meet up with Ms. Tish.  Our parent center is open from 8:00 am- 12:00 pm daily.  


Be on the look out for flyers and notes home about Parent Events.  We will be starting our 8 week Parenting Partners classes on Tuesday nights.  These classes offer great parenting lessons and skills that will help you and your child be successful and build strong relationships.

Topics include:

Positive Parenting

Creating Confident Kids

Communication the Works

Creating Structure for Achievement

Discipline-Practice for Success

What Children Need to Succeed

Parents Engaged for Academic Success


Materials are in English and Spanish.


We are also lucky to have the "Raising a Reader" program for Kindergarten students.  Through this program, children get access to a new set of books each week so that they can practice reading at home.  Your child should have a book bag that gets returned weekly and then they get a new set of books to enjoy each week!  Students are encouraged to have their book bag returned each Thursday.  We also encourage parents to read these books with their child so foster a love of reading!  If you have any questions, please contact the office.
