You can’t skate by this day.
MINNEAPOLIS – Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) is proud to celebrate National African-American Family Involvement Day on Feb. 8. Throughout the day, schools across the district will host individual events like concerts, dances, school tours, breakfasts, lunches and workshops. The day will culminate with a districtwide family roller-skating party hosted by the Office of Black Male Student Achievement and the Office of Student, Family and Community Engagement.
National African-American Family Involvement Day started in 1996 as a result of the Million Man March and is a fun way for all MPS families to get involved in their child’s educational life. Families can learn about MPS programs, engage with staff, request enrollment for the 2016-17 school year and much more.
