Strong Families Program

The Strong Families Program (SFP), located on the OC Johnson Campus, is a district-wide program open to all YSD1 families.

What We Do

Strong families program. What have we been up to? Read the latest.

The goal of the SFP is to improve students' academic skills by strengthening the family as a whole unit. This program empowers families to reach their goals and teaches skills you can use to become the strongest family unit you have ever been. (And we have some fun along the way!)

How Do We Do That

We get together for classes, workshops, and field trips that help families build the skills they need! We cover topics such as:

  • What is AVID?
  • The five components of learning how to read
  • Parent & child relationship building
  • Communication styles & techniques
  • How to write a resume using Microsoft Word
  • Parent & child together time in the classroom

The possibilities are endless!

Want to learn something that is not listed here? Our participating parents and guardians get to tell us what they want to learn more about!

Earn Rewards

Not only do participating SFP parents receive free resources, materials, and activities. They also earn rewards for consistent attendance and participation. Some examples of rewards are:

  • Every month parents can earn a free book of their choice.
  • Every 20 days of parent/guardian attendance earns a free piece of an at-home library corner including a bookshelf, reading lamp, comfy chair, and more.
  • Some community partner workshops include a giveaway or drawing for participating parents/guardians.
