"An important aspect of schooling, for our family, is a sense of community. We have not been disappointed with the community Hale Cook has provided. We know all the teachers, administrators and support staff and they know our family. They continually show us that they are committed to our children, excited to teach them and eager to watch them grow.”

Parent Leadership Organizations

Participating in parent leadership organizations is a great way to get involved in the education of children. Adults who take an active role in education positively impact future generations of leaders, workers and parents. These adults also get a chance to see firsthand what goes on inside schools within the Kansas City, Missouri School District.
