Instructor: Mrs. Marsha Musick
Marsha Musick, LMSW
As your School-Based Family Liaison, I'm here to provide a link between the parents and school personnel in addition to helping parents connect with needed resources. The support to families and students includes information on programs and services available within our school and community. As the Family Liaison, I am here to assist families in connecting with the administration, faculty, and staff in a partnership relationship that will ultimately support the students at Lincoln Elementary School.
