Staff Members
Welcome!

Mrs. Karen Hudson serves as the Family and Community Involvement Coordinator, a position she has held for over 15 years. Her office is located at 169 Briarwood Street inside Briarwood School.  The office is an inviting place where families and community can gather information about the schools & activities.   We strive to keep you informed & involved!
We believe that family engagement means the participation of parents and family members in regular two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities, including ensuring:

  • That parents play an integral role in assisting their child’s learning.
  • That parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education at school
  • That parents are full partners in their child’s education and are included, as appropriate, in decision-making and on advisory committees to assist in the education of their child.
