Community coffee and conversation with Catalyst CEO Gordon Hannon

Catalyst CEO Gordon Hannon and members of the Catalyst Maria team recently had an inspiring meeting with CM parents! The purpose of this meeting was to renew in-person quarterly gatherings with members of the Bilingual Advisory Committee and Parent Advisory Committee (as well as any interested parent) with Mr. Hannon and the CM team.  These meetings aim to build parent community, and to listen to parents’ experiences and hopes at Catalyst Maria.  At this meeting, the team also introduced newly elected Catalyst Board Member and Catalyst Maria parent Ms. Mitze Moore.

Fourteen parents attended, including members of the Bilingual Advisory Committees and Parent Advisory Committees. Representing the Catalyst Maria team were Naurice Olivera, Alberto Ramirez, Lydia Hope, Julio Velez, and Gordon Hannon.

Parents expressed care and appreciation for the CM staff, highlighting strong communication between parents and the school and the strong leadership by Principal Dawn Donati. Ms. Moore and Mr. Hannon discussed how a parent from each campus are part of the Catalyst Board, and how Catalyst continues to work on ways to coordinate BAC/PAC meetings, breakfasts, and ways to listen to and collect parent voice.
