Welcome to Americas High School (AHS), home of the Trail Blazers. My name is Jesse J. Smith and it’s my pleasure to serve as your Parent/Family Engagement Liaison here at AHS. Retired of Army of 22 years, taught business and Finance for five years at Seoul America High School on Yongsan Korea in Seoul Korea. I began my employment in October 2015 and have had the distinct pleasure of meeting many parents.
The Title I Parent Liaison implements a Parental/Family and Engagement involvement program that creates a partnership among the school, parents, and community members. The Parent Liaison provides workshops that empower parents to become their own problem-solvers, strengthen families, and encouraging comprehensive involvement in their child's academic achievement.
Americas will offer a variety of presentations such as collaborative education involvement activities, Common Sense Parenting, Women’s Health, Social Media, Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault, Bullying, No Means No, Nutrition Education & Healthy Cooking, and other programs in an effort to increase and promote parental involvement on our campus. AHS strives to give our parents the most up-to-date training and information to improve their students' academic performance.
I’m prepared to be that crucial link of communication between the campus, community, and home. In collaboration with the administrative team, we directly influence the ability of the school to reach its goals, as well as maintain federal compliance. I practice an open-door policy, I’m here at your convenience. Together we will increase, improve, effective communication between students, parents, teachers, and administration.
I encourage all parents to get involved in their students’ education endeavors. Become a volunteer, have you volunteered this year? Studies show that parents that volunteer increase student and teacher cognizance. Your involvement by attending parenting programs and volunteering will enhance your students’ education.
My mission is to promote Parental/Family and Engagement workshops in an effort to empower you with resources, strategies, and skills that will help you support your students in their academic endeavors, as well as enrich their lives. I’m excited as we move forward into the 2021 / 2022 school year. Follow the Parent Liaison on Twitter @JSmith_AHS, check out Student 360 and Americas High School Web page under the parent tab.
