CAMDEN — Parents for Great Camden Schools and Camden Enrollment are offering parents the opportunity to learn more about Camden Cityâ€™s free PreK-12 options through a virtual school fair.
The â€œVirtual School Fairsâ€ will be held online through Zoom and will also be closed-captioned for Spanish speaking families. Representatives from all public school types, including district, charter, and renaissance schools, will be participating in this event. The event was put together to give Camden families the opportunity to discover Pre-K, K-8, and high school options. Parents will learn about schoolsâ€™ curriculum, afterschool programming, and other services offered.
â€œNow, more than ever, it’s important parents have access to high-quality schools. While the pandemic has made it difficult for parents to tour schools and meet face-to-face with school leaders, we hope to bring parents and school representatives together through these Virtual School Fairs. In doing so, our hope is that parents can make the best-informed choice among the many school options in the City of Camden for their students,â€ said Shirley Irizarry, executive director of Parents for Great Camden Schools.
The virtual tours will include several guest speakers:
Tanya Gillespie-Lambert, Community and Parent Involvement Specialist for the office of early childhood at CCSD will be speaking to to pre-k families
Shirley Irizarry, Executive Director of Parents for Great Camden Schools will be speaking to K-8th families
Tameeka Mason, Executive Director of Camden Enrollment will be speaking to High School families about school options for their students.
â€œOur collaborative efforts with PGCS to provide the â€œVirtual School Fairâ€ is our way in continuing our mission in meeting parents, students and the community where they are and empowering them to exercise their right to school choiceâ€ said Tameeka Mason.
The â€œVirtual School Fairsâ€ will occur on the following dates/times:
Pre-K Virtual School Fair: March 22, from 4â€“6 p.m.
