Parent Resource Center
At MMBDA, we recognize that a child's first and most influential teacher is you, the parent or guardian. You can help your child and the school by connecting with teachers and staff to find out what is needed to ensure success and how you can help reach that goal. Studies of successful schools report that parent involvement is a major factor in their outcomes, including closing the achievement gap between various groups of students. Improving the effectiveness of the home as a learning environment is critical to promoting long-term school success.
MMBDA's Parent Resource Center is a dedicated space at MMBDA with the purpose of providing parents with the support and information they need to be active and involved members of the MMBDA community. The Parent Resource Center offers support and assistance, a monthly newsletter, computer access, parent training workshops, and serves as an information and referral source for families and staff members. Together with the Capital Area Food Bank, the MMBDA Parent Resource Center hosts a food pantry on the second Wednesday of each month where families can pick up food items at no cost. The Parent Involvement Center is located on the first floor of the Brookland Campus to the right of the security desk.
