New Families

Welcome new families! Our Concord Community is excited to have you! We would like to match you with a mentor family, please complete the New Family Information Form to be matched with a Mentor Family. To sign up to be a Mentor Family, please complete the Mentor Family Signup Form.

What does it mean to be a Mentor Family?

  • invite the new family for an activity with your family (ie park playdate, or ice cream)

  • invite the new family to an upcoming school event and meet them there (Concordfest, Science Fair, Carnival, etc)

  • periodically reach out to the new family to check in and answer questions.
