Parent Involvement through PTA/PTSA
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.
Ways to Get Involved
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.
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.
Spend time each day with your child. Listen to them and take time for playing games, reading together or simply taking a walk.
