These resources have been allocated to support our vision of developing scholars who have the skills and determination to pursue higher education. We also provide wonderful services for our Acorn Woodland families. We offer parent workshops focused on helping families understand how to best support their children academically. Additionally, we have a robust parent leadership program where parents receive training on how to be highly effective leaders in the greater Acorn Woodland community. We believe that having healthy families and children is critical to achieving academic success and have made family health and wellness a focus for many of our parent programs. We offer a healthy cooking and eating class, which is supported by our partner, Champions for Change. Acorn Woodland also holds a weekly farmers market that provides our families and community with affordable, fresh organic fruits and vegetables. Furthermore, we offer families fitness opportunities, such as our parent-led Zumba classes and morning walks around the AWE track.
