iBoost Parent Booster Program
Parents at GWUOHS get together at least quarterly to discuss ways to support the faculty, staff and students at school. Through an environment of open communication and concern for the entire student body, parents and learning coaches discuss upcoming events and how they can support the continued mission of the school.
Through a partnership with K12, our school participates and offers a large selection of live, online sessions and events that provide assistance with schooling your student, managing your home, and lots more. You'll find opportunities to visit online with other parents and to improve your online skills, your math and writing skills, and your parenting strategies.
Sometimes you just have a question that you'd like to ask another parent. If you need advice about working with your student, using the curriculum, setting up your school space, time management, using the Online School or LMS, student motivation, or just getting through your day, log in to ask your question of a real parent who is there just for you. You're not alone!
Parent Round Table Discussions
These monthly discussions cover topics of interest to Learning Coaches, and are hosted by a K12 team member but directed by you and your peers. Popular topics include "Single-Parenting and Virtual Education," "Schooling an Only Child at Home," "The Working Parent," and more. There may be a topic that will match your experience!
Parent Clubs and Communities
Parent Clubs and Communities give parents a chance to take part in a book club, learn and share about online tools, or be part of a community of other military parents who are schooling at home. Clubs and Communities are just for parents, and there's something for everyone.
Sometimes it's just nice to sit around the table and share ideas and strategies with other parents who are schooling at home. But can you do it in a virtual education setting? You bet—Talking Parent2Parent is just that! These twice-monthly sessions are your time to just drop in and share with other parents who speak the K12 language. Come and bounce your questions off other parents who have come for the same reason. Come with an idea to share. Or just come and visit. Pop in any time and stay as long as you like. We look forward to visiting with you and other parents from across the nation and around the world.
