Why Attend Parents Weekend?
Parents Weekend provides parents with an opportunity to engage in all three promises. However, the most important reasons for attending parents weekend is to reassure you that we at TJC are living up to our promises and providing a program that can allow you the opportunity to bond with your children, by showing them that you care and that you are there!
Mission: The mission of Parents Weekend is to allow Tyler Junior College Parents to actively participate in the three promises of Tyler Junior College
Promise #1 A Quality Education - During Parents Weekend there will be a brief informational session that informs parents about services that are offered at TJC to ensure that their children will be successful at College. “An informed Parent translates into an informed student.”
Promise #2 A Vibrant Student Life - During Parents Weekend parents will have the opportunity to engage in student life by attending programs coordinated by various departments on campus.
Promise #3 Community Service - During Parents Weekend, parents will have the opportunity to engage in a community service activity.
