PAGES was established in the summer of 2013 when a group of concerned WVHS parents worked with the new principal, Jason Stipp, to organize a new parent group. The mission and purpose of this group was to close the acadamic achievement gap of African American students and provide support for the parents of those students.
Over the past five years PAGES has supported parents with training on the use of school systems such as Naviance, Home Access and Google Classroom, offered reduced cost ACT prep, offered a tutoring program for its members, exposed students to many opportunities, advocated for equity in education, and raised awareness of the achievement gap.
PAGES achieved its 501 (c) 3 not for profit status in 2017. Please support our efforts by making a donation here.
We look forward to enlisting your help to build upon our successes.
Our mission is to help close the achievement gap and advocate for the needs of the African American students.
“In support of our mission, Waubonsie is a community where students, staff, and parents can safely and collaboratively work to create a culture that promotes student learning, self-advocacy, and tradition & spirit.”
PAGES also supports the mission and vision of Waubonsie Valley High School.
“At Waubonsie Valley High School our mission is to foster students’ learning to its highest potential while providing diverse and challenging educational experiences that academically, socially, and emotionally shape our students into independent and productive members of society.”– Waubonsie Valley High School
