Theme for AFA this year: Psychological Safety for All Scholars

Staff, administrators and families have all seen the psychological impact of the pandemic on scholars at Alma. There is an increased need for mental health support and social emotional support. Learning cannot happen without psychological safety. This year during AFA meetings, Alma and families will partner together to examine the current structures the school uses to support scholars, engage in learning about ways to support scholars outside of school, and share best practices with our wider community.

Alma’s Family Advisory strives to facilitate and encourage parents' active and productive communication with the school, strengthen bonds between the school and the wider community, and inspire volunteerism of families in service of the school. All families of scholars who attend Alma are welcome to attend and should feel confident and comfortable sharing their views. Spanish translation will be provided.
