About this school
A special strength of our educational program includes the many parents who volunteer in our classrooms as well as the generosity and support of the Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF). Parent participation is a hallmark of Alderwood’s culture. The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a very important partner in our school programs. There are numerous opportunities to become involved at Alderwood from classroom volunteers to fundraising events to parent education nights to being an official duplicator. The strong partnership between parents and staff has formed what is described as the “Alderwood Difference.” In addition to Back to School Night parent presentations, parents of students who are not achieving are invited to a Student Study Team meeting to review resources and plan interventions. Family activities during the year include family PTA programs such as Family Festival and Movie night, Book fairs, and many more. Awards assemblies and student performances further encourage parents to be involved. There are parent education nights hosted by the site and the district to increase the involvement of parents of children with special program needs. Parents and community representatives are involved in planning, implementing and evaluating Alderwood programs.
