An evening to Remember….

Education is the great equalizer, an equitable
educational system is needed to empower and engage
learning equally for all students. William Jackson

The opportunity to share in dialogue about the
progressive nature and transformative events of the
past 30 years. How public education has taken a turn
for the better or worse. The historical changes from
policies, desegregation, parental involvement and
faculty accountability. These elements have a profound
effect not just on Raines, but Duval County Public Schools
and the move from a traditional Southern mentality towards
educational diversity and inclusion.

they should be.  
Summer is not the time to let the brain drain,
but to rejuvenate and invigorate. Parents don’t
let Social Media take the place of learning
opportunities and importantly family time.

Technology and Social Media:
Social Media is playing a part in the dynamics
of families so parents must be aware, cautious and
diligent in keeping Social Media content safe and
friendly. Technology has become so invasive that
children will carry their phones and tablets everywhere
texting, photographing, video recording and interact
with their friends even while participating in family
