Fall 2021

Dear Parents,

Whether you are new to the Wheaton parent community or a parent veteran, the Parent Engagement team wants to keep you in the loop with information that is helpful for both you and your student. We encourage you to keep your contact information updated because, in the days and months ahead, important information will be communicated via email and through our monthly Parent Newsletter.

Most parents have questions along the way and if you can’t find answers to your questions on this website, feel free to email us at parents@wheaton.edu and we will help point you in the right direction.

We are here to support you as you support your student!

Sincerely,

The Parent Engagement Team

 

 

 

 

The role of Parent Engagement is to come alongside parents as they encourage the growth and success of their student through the college years.
