A tree in the Family and Community Engagement Center of the Chase Building sports warm hats and gloves for younger children in need who visit the center (until the limited supply runs out). The FACE Center is a one-stop location for families and community members looking for information on the Waterbury Public Schools or resources that are available in the community for Waterbury area families. One of the goals of the center is to help parents become fully engaged in their child's education. The Center works closely with schools and parent liaisons to assure that all parents feel welcome in their own schools and know whom to contact if any questions arise. Research indicates that engagement in schools not only helps improve student academic outcomes but is also linked to improved behavior, attendance, graduation and college enrollment rates.
