My sister, Ana Mirsajedin, is the Parent Facilitator for Oak Grove Elementary School Fine Arts Academy. She asked me for ideas for solucions when faced with a challenge, I suggested she contact the Rotary Club near the school where she works.

What followed was a great partnership. 

An is in her fourth year of service to CCSD as Oak Grove’s parent engagement facilitator. In this role, she not only assists parents seeking information and assistance, but also develops new ways to serve them and involve them.

Her most recent accomplishments include establishing a food pantry for students and families in need, with support from community partner, the Rotary Club of Woodstock; and creating a Parent Engagement Resource Room, where shelves are stocked with materials that parents can use to help their students learn more. 

“She has a spirit of generosity and service that is contagious!” Principal Penny Valle said. “As she finds new ways to serve our students, staff, and families, they, in turn, find new ways to serve our school."
