Families & Schools Together

A collaborative team of parents, teachers, and other community partners are led by MISD social worker Michelle Wilson to plan and deliver monthly family-engagement programs called FASTWORKS® at each of the four K-8 schools. Each session includes a free meal and an activity for children to enjoy with their parents and peers. Community resource information is also available.

FASTWORKS® is designed to:

  • Unite families and schools to help students succeed;
  • Empower parents, teachers, children and families;
  • Enhance a sense of community; and
  • Provide a network of knowledge, skills and understanding.

GreenState Credit Union (formerly University of Iowa Community Credit Union) has renewed their support of this program with a $5,000 grant for the 2019-20 school year.
