Twenty five years ago, when I was a newly hired school administrator, I was looking for all the resources I could find to help my students and their families. Ozaukee Family Services soon became one of my favorites. They helped our Counselors by providing presentations in our schools. They helped our Technology staff by providing Internet Safety classes. They helped our students and families going through divorce with counseling sessions out of school. Realizing that most learning takes place BEFORE children are old enough to attend school, they provide in home parenting classes (Parents As Teachers), which helped our district by improving the behavior and academic readiness of our incoming Kindergartners. BUT it wasn't until I volunteered to be on the Board after I retired that I understood just how many of the parents in the district donated financially to support all of those wonderful programs. Wow! Great programs trying to fill real needs of the community supported by the generosity of the members of the community. It doesn't get much better than that.
