Parent Institute For Quality Education: Parent Graduation SpeechWinter 2009 | Admin | April 19, 2009 at 12:06 pm
My name is Charity.
Ladies and gentlemen and faculty of Eagle Rock Junior/Senior High School, we are truly grateful that the GEAR UP program invited the Parent Institute for Quality Education. They gave us the opportunity to learn what we thought we knew about educational opportunities and future tools that we will be able to use to further enhance our children’s development.
We gained knowledge about the “STAR” system, guidelines & scoring of state required tests, GPA’s, how to help our children achieve their goals as well as the different types of financial aid available. For these, in addition to other things, we want to thank our instructor Mercedes Nieves and, once again, the GEAR UP program for giving us the opportunity to attend the classes. Hopefully we learned how to hone our skills, and successfully use our wisdom, as parents, in the successful development of our children, inspiring them to attend the college of their choice.
