Parent Coordinator Corner

Hello Urban Action Academy Parents,

My name is Yves Pierre and I am so honored to be your Parent Coordinator. This will be my second year as a Parent Coordinator. I have had the pleasure of beginning my career as a Parent Coordinator here at Urban Action Academy. I will do my best to help you all along our journey to graduation. I’m looking forward to a great
year getting to know all of you and helping our school. 

Now on to business. As a Parent Coordinator, I am the liaison between the parents, teachers
and the student body. Communication is everything! Remember, I’m here for you with any questions or
concerns you may have. With remote/blended learning just starting this year, there are going to be
many questions on how to do things. I will do my best to get the answers. I would love for
us all to work together in a collaborative way. Please don’t hesitate to share your ideas
with me, I welcome your feedback always:) Together we are going to be a great help to the
students, teachers and parents.
Your time and effort is greatly appreciated!!!
Best Regards,
Yves Pierre
Urban Action Academy -  Parent Coordinator
