Parents as Teachers

In the first few years of life, children learn more and at a faster pace than at any other time in life. Infants are born learners and parents are first and foremost, the most important teacher.  
 
CAP Tulsa - Union SchoolsParents As Teachers (PAT) is a voluntary parent education and family support program for Union families who have children from birth to three years of age.  Parents are supported by PAT-certified parent educators who are knowledgeable about child development and brain research on early learning.  By understanding what to expect during each stage of development, parents can easily capture teachable moments in everyday life to enhance their child's language development, intellectual growth, social development and motor skills. Union partners with CAP Tulsa to provide resources.

PAT families have access to:

  • Personal visits – This is a time in which the parent educator will share age-appropriate child development and parenting information, helping the parent understand each stage of a child's development as well as practical tips on ways to encourage early learning.
  • Group meetings – Meetings allow parents to get together, to gain new insights and to share their experiences, common concerns, and successes.  Relevant parenting topics are discussed and shared, as well as an opportunity to participate in parent-child activities. 
  • Screenings – Screenings are offered periodically to gage a child's overall development.  The goal is to provide early detection of potential problems to prevent difficulties later in school.
  • Resource network - PAT helps families link with other community services and providers as needed.

Red Ribbon Week

Red Ribbon Week, which is celebrated annually October 23-31, is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness program. Union Public Schools will host a myriad of activities during this time to raise awareness as well.

Red Ribbon Week was started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally tortured and murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico.  As a tribute to SA Camarena, high school friend, Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.

Union school sites will host activities ranging from special assemblies, special dress-up days to classroom activities that address the concerns related to illicit drugs.
