Parents are the key to our education process

At Brilla, we know that family involvement in your child’s education is the key to success.

Everyone at Brilla believes that the parent is the first educator. That’s why we partner with parents and families at every grade level. Research shows that students whose parents stay

involved in school have better attendance and behavior, get better grades, demonstrate better social skills, and adapt better to school.

Family involvement also helps students to develop a lifelong love of learning, which is a key to long-term success. At Brilla, you are invited to attend classes to see your child in action. We keep you up to date on your child’s triumphs and challenges. It’s important that we are always on the same page, so that families can support the educational process through reading, discussion, and homework at home. And you can always call your child’s teacher to speak about any questions or concerns you may have.


Constant Communication—In addition to regular texts, emails and calls from your child’s teachers, each campus has one school-wide bulletin board (typically near the entrance and easily viewable by families at drop-off and pick-up) which contains relevant and timely content. We also post highlights on social media and publish a bilingual monthly school-wide newsletter.

Weekly Roosting Rallies—This is our weekly spirit event for scholars, and families are encouraged to attend! It’s a time every week to see the children excited about being in school, chant for their homerooms, talk about virtues, and applaud the Scholars of the Week.

Monthly Coffee and Conversations—Each month, parents, principal, teachers, and staff get together for coffee and conversation, an opportunity in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, to discuss your child’s education or any aspects of the school culture and educational process.

Parent University (3x a year)—Parent University allows families to directly engage in content related to their child’s development and other relevant concerns or questions. Topics and best practices highlighted include curriculum, character and virtues, anti-bullying, how to have crucial conversations with children, boundary setting, and more.
