Parent Support

There are many ways to get involved and stay connected including our Parent Mentor Program, Parent Advisory Committee, Parent Support Groups, and Back to School Nights. 

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) Meetings
PAC meets one Friday each month from 10:00-11:00 AM. Each year, we publish a list of dates on our website and on our school calendar. Among the activities that PAC can participate in are the Parent Directory, Staff Appreciation Day, guest speakers, social activities, and lots more. We always welcome new suggestions and volunteers.

PAC Directory
Twice a year, Gifford publishes a directory of parents and students that includes names, phone numbers, towns, and email addresses. This directory is intended to help parents and caregivers connect outside of school hours. 

Parent Support Groups
Every other month, Gifford offers parents the opportunity to come together and share their experiences. Meetings are organized around a common topic of interest and facilitated by Peter Rosenmeier, Clinical Director.

Back to School Nights
Twice a year, parents are invited in to meet teachers, learn more about their student's program, and see the great work that goes on every day. Emails go out in advance of these events. We encourage you to join us.
