Kelly Wachel Book Release Party for Parents and Schools Together

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Kelly Wachel, a Kansas City native, will appear to celebrate the Publication of her New Book Parents and Schools Together: Blueprint for Success with Urban Youth.

ABOUT KELLY WACHEL:  Kelly Wachel is the Public Information Officer for Center School District in south Kansas City.  She spends part of her time helping schools produce high achieving students and the other part raising her three kids, Maggie, Abe, and Lydia, with her husband Matt, usually the two are not mutually exclusive.

ABOUT PARENTS AND SCHOOLS TOGETHER:  Parents And Schools Together shows administrators, teachers, and parents how to work together to produce high achieving students in urban school districts.  We all know that in this fast-paced world of standards and commitments, it is easy to forget what schools and parents are all about.  There are things that schools can do to show parents the way to raise successful students.  Parents have to help in order for schools to be high performing.  Schools, especially schools of poverty and low achievement, have to have parent help if they are going to make it.  Parents can’t use the excuse that they don' t know what to do or I’m not going to do that anymore.  When schools enlist the help of parents, schools can begin to harness the full effect of all adults tag teaming together to raise students up to the levels they are capable of.  Parents and School Together shows that it’s not just the school’s job to raise kids and it is not just the parent's job to raise kids.  It takes both working together to raise successful students and kids.
