Mission Statement

CSArts-SGV’s Family Link provides an opportunity for parents to stay connected to what's happening at CSArts-SGV, while maximizing the school experience for all CSArts-SGV students. Family Link further strengthens the bonds of communication within our school community and promotes cooperation between family and school in meeting the needs of our students.

The mission of Family Link is to create an all-inclusive, diverse, and collaborative parent community; provide a time and process for meaningful volunteer opportunities; help provide resources to the school in order to further enhance students' academic, artistic, physical, and emotional growth; and help CSArts-SGV parents stay involved and organized for the good of the school and students.

Family Link helps with the following parent engagement opportunities: 

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Events: Every month, our Family Link parents organize a themed staff appreciation event on the CSArts-SGV campus. Volunteer tasks include food and drink donations, decorations, set-up/clean-up, and any additional event assistance. This is a fun-filled parent group that brings much joy to the teachers and administrative team. 

Parent Education Presentations: 3-4 times per year, Family Link hosts presentations about current issues that impact our student body. Examples of possible topics include school safety, managing your child’s social media, college preparation, vaping, etc. This group will help to brainstorm relevant topics and help with on-site coordination for the presentations. Committee correspondence and planning takes place via email.  

*This group will also help to coordinate any needs associated with the Principal’s Advisory Group meeting with our principal, Dr. William Wallace, that takes place 3-4 times per year.

Volunteer Opportunities: This Family Link group is our go-to list for all possible volunteer opportunities that come up throughout the year, including (but not limited to) front desk support, administrative office support, and school-wide event support. These volunteers will be contacted via email. Scheduling will be based on the parents’ availability.

Professional Mentorship Opportunities: Launching in spring 2020, the Professional Mentorship Program will pair rising seniors with professional mentors in their selected area of interest. This group will consist of parents who are considered experts in their field (at least five years in the profession) who are willing to meet with students 2-3 times during the year, including at least one “shadow” opportunity at your place of work. This annual program will culminate in a mentorship luncheon with mentors and mentees. This group consists of both parents and community members.
