• Parent & Family Involvement

    Getting Students Engaged

    One of the best ways a parent can make a difference in a child's school performance is by getting involved.  Studies have shown that students do better both academically and socially.  Parent-child relationships, parenting skills, and parent's feelings toward school also improve.  Educating our children takes a team effort.  Parent involvement is the key to that success.

    The Entire School

    • Join the school's parent-teacher organization

    Parents are always needed in the school community.

    • Volunteer-for example, in the classroom, during extra-curricular activities, or with fund-raising efforts
    • Attend school events, parent-teacher conferences, and school-board meetings.

    Your Child's Education

    • Students are more likely to thrive in school when their parents:
    • talk with them about the importance of education.
    • ask what they're doing in school and show interest and enthusiasm.
    • communicate regularly with thier teachers and other school staff.
    • are aware of school assignments, foster good study habits, and offer help when needed.
    • support learning at home through reading and enrichment activities.
    • monitor activities outside of school such as limiting television, video games, Internet, and texting time.
