Thank You Parent Ambassadors

Ambassadors Welcome and Help New Parents
Posted on 09/09/2019
Over two dozen sets of parents, including a number of Heelan alumni, are serving as Parent Ambassadors for our schools this year. 

The program -- to help new parents feel supported and comfortable in the Bishop Heelan School System -- started out with a picnic with new families.  

Parent ambassadors are partnered with families to touch base, answer questions or bring the family up to speed on any upcoming events. Fun events will be held during the year to connect families, according to Jenny Pattee, enrollment director.

“Ambassador outreach is an important way to support new and nearly new families, since students come to our Sioux City Catholic schools from different faiths, 22 communities and diverse backgrounds,” says Pattee. “By helping new families feel comfortable and welcome, we can better promote our amazing schools and all that BHCS has to offer.”
