Parent Resources

A number of school-wide meetings are available for parents to become more involved in and become more knowledgeable about Overfelt. These include School Site Council (SSC), Café Con Ms. Miranda, and Overfelt Booster Club. We encourage you to become involved.

School Site CouncilTop of Page

In School Site Council, parents participate in major school-wide decisions. It is made up of a group of parents, teachers, classified employees, students, and the Principal with the purpose of working together to make major school-wide decisions about Overfelt High School. In these meetings, held the first Wednesday of the month, they develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs, safety, and school budget.

Café con Ms. MirandaTop of Page

Café Con Ms. Miranda is an informal meeting which targets our Spanish-speaking parents. These meetings are held every first Friday of the month. At these meetings, parents learn to navigate the educational system. We hold workshops for parents about college applications, financial aid for college, parenting, and graduation requirements. At these meetings parents can also discuss their concerns about wide range of issues. At these meetings we also have parents that represent this group in DELAC and School Site Council (SSC).

Booster ClubTop of Page

The club welcomes all parents and community members to help raise money to support our athletic teams and other clubs and recruit volunteers for school activities. This group was instrumental in organizing the events for Overfelt's 50th anniversary, including special homecoming events and our annual Scholarship Luncheon. At each of these monthly meetings, interpreters are available to support our Spanish-speaking parents. 

Parent ConferencesTop of Page

Twice a year -- just after the first report card in September and at the start of the second semester -- our "Back to School Night" gives parents the chance to talk with all their students' teachers. It's held in the gym and the sessions are two hours each: 2:00-4:00 and
5:30-7:30.
