IMSA West CYSP students did a great job serving their families an enjoyable Italian dinner on March 7th. We had 30 students help plan, set up, decorate, serve, and clean up for the dinner of approximately 100 family members, advisors, and guests. Then each student took a turn telling the group what they appreciated about the CYSP program, how it has helped them, and what activities they have enjoyed the most so far.

In addition, It was a nice experience to improve presentation skills. Here are the students presented demonstrations: – Eva’n Young – Darnae’ Simmons – Jessy Jeter – Amir Whigham

Many researches confirm that parents’ involvement in their children’s education can be one of the biggest predictors of student success. Parents are encouraged to increase their interaction and discussion with their children and to also be more responsive and sensitive to their children’s social, emotional, and intellectual developmental needs.
