Family and Community Engagement Liaison Visits Fallsburg Centers
Ms. Aleta Lymon, Family and Community Liaison at Fallsburg Central School District, began her first series of meetings with parents and families out in the community on September 26 and 27, 2017 at the Eagle Ridge Apartments Community Center in Woodridge and Lake View Apartments in Loch Sheldrake. Ms. Rosalind Natale, from Woodridge Housing Authority (Eagle Ridge facility) and member of Fallsburg’s Benjamin Cosor Elementary School PTA Executive Committee, helped organize that event.

Ms. Lymon introduced everyone to The Family and Community Engagement Program (FCEP), a national My Brother's Keeper initiative that engages families in student learning. The intention is to work with families, teachers, guidance counselors, students and community to build relationships, strengthen communication, and to link students/families to available community resources. She called herself an advocate for the families with school district.

Ms. Lymon will monitor the progress of the sixty students that enroll in the Program from pre-K through 12th grade. It is important that she, with support from the parents, identifies any challenging issues arising early in the school year. She told parents that they can advocate programs or activities that they think will support their child’s development and learning in the school.

Together, the FCEP and the parents will support the child’s pathway to success. The Program has key life milestones for progress throughout the program for each age group of children. Ms. Lymon is available on the telephone, at school meetings and will come out to the community as she has done for these two evenings to meet parents and students. Ms. Lymon was pleased with the turnout of families and looks forward to a successful year of healthy Family and Community Engagement in Fallsburg.
