Recently Oak Lawn-Hometown District 123 hosted a community dialogue as part of the One Community initiative. This chat focused on the importance of real talk in the district. Parents and community members were invited to schools throughout the district to speak about what real talk means to them with administrators.
“Real talk means being honest and direct, it’s not being afraid to be free to say whats on your mind and share ideas,” said Sward Parent, Kelly Smith.
Attending the event gave residents a chance to complement and critique our school district and get more information straight from the source.
“We have a great district and in order to keep it that way we can’t be afraid to get involved in the nitty-gritty. Attending this event and talking to others is a great way to get ideas or concerns on the table,” said Sarah.
“My daughter is a kindergarten student and I just feel like now more than ever it is important for my husband and I to get involved in the community. It’s really important to me,” Kim.
The One Community dialogue is a part of Oak Lawn-Hometown District 123’s Parent University Program.
