Here is how the Walltham Family School supports
families and the community:
-More than 150 people from 48 families benefit from the Family
Literacy programming at the Waltham Family School. Adults receive
ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes, parenting
education, interactive family literacy, home visits, and life skills
training. And are prepared to support their children in school and
become active members of the workforce and the community.
-90% of Waltham Family School children perform at or above grade
level in Waltham Public Schools by the time they reach 2nd grade.
-"A mother's reading skill is the greatest determinant of her
children's future academic success, outweighing other factors, such
as neighborhood and family income." (Demography, National Institute
of Health, October 2010)
The Waltham Family School's 4th annual
Fiesta for Families will take place on May 31st, 2012 from 5:30pm to
