Parent involvement is critical to successful student achievement. Research shows that when families become involved in their child’s education, academic performance improves, attendance is better and students overall have a more positive attitude about school.
There are a number of ways for you to get involved. Here are just a few:
Participate in Your Child’s Parent/Teacher Association –Join your school’s PTA and join other parents in activities that support the school.
Volunteer – Share your time and talent at school! This is a fantastic way to give back and be an integral part of your child’s educational process.
Be Your Child’s Advocate – No one knows your child better than you. Help us get to know your child by sharing any special information. Attend parent-teacher conferences and keep in regular communication, contacting the staff anytime you have questions.
Support the Learning Process at Home – Establishing a learning environment at home helps reinforce what your student is learning at school. Make sure you offer a variety of reading materials and promote interest in current events. Doing so helps build vocabulary and creates a level of social awareness.
Have Fun! Spend time each day with your child. Listen to them and take time for playing games, reading together or simply taking a walk.
