Parental involvement is a combination of commitment and active participation on the part of parent to the school and to the student. As parents you can ensure that your child receives the benefits from parental involvement by staying up to date on what is happening in the classroom.
Tulsa Public Schools is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he or she needs to succeed in school and beyond. As a result, these involvement opportunities empower parents to take action. By connecting parents to school officials, community members, other parents, knowledge, and powerful allies, these opportunities build bridges and networks that support schools and sustain whole communities.
Meet Our Parent Involvement Facilitator
Hello, my name is Amy Castellanos! I go by Miss Amy and I am the Parent Involvement Facilitator here at Clinton West. This is my third year with Tulsa Public Schools. I have previous experience in pre-K and attended Tulsa Community College to pursue my degree in early childhood education. I have three children; my daughter Madison is in ninth grade, my son Trey is in first grade here at Clinton West, and my youngest Deacon is three years-old.
We have an amazing room to accommodate us, so please stop by if you haven’t yet had the chance. Our room number is 123 and is located next to the Pleasant Porter Cafeteria. I look forward to getting to know all of our students and parents this year as we build our school family. Clinton West is the BEST!
