• What is a Parent Liaison? 

    A Parent Liaison is a McAvinnue Elementary School faculty member (not a volunteer) who works to bridge the gap between home and school by helping parents get the information and support they need to ensure their child’s academic and social success. As a parent, you have a private link, connection, and bridge to your child’s school.
