Parent Engagement

rowe_pacThe success of Rowe Scholars depends on the active engagement of parents, guardians and other adults in each scholar's life. There are many ways for parents to get involved, including the following.

Parent Volunteers

All Rowe parents commit to a minimum of 2 volunteer hours over the school year to benefit their scholar's educational programming (see Family Pledge). Parents can volunteer to be a classroom speaker, support with dismissal, chaperon events or field trips, or donate items to classrooms. Parents should sign-in with teachers or main office when volunteering or donating to track Volunteer Hours. For more information, please contact Mrs. LeShonne Segura at

Parent Advisory Committee

The PAC: Parent Advisory Committee is composed of parents from all grade levels who wish to represent all parents and make decisions that affect scholars and families school-wide. The PAC plans and executes events and fundraisers, leads parent problem solving and builds strong connections among Rowe families. All meetings will take place in the elementary school cafeteria. See monthly calendars for more information.

At Rowe, we believe our school and scholars’ success is directly tied to a strong partnership with our families. As a school, we strive to equip our parents with the tools and platform to advocate for issues that affect our school community, including equal funding and the access of high quality education in Chicago.
