You’re Invited to be an Involved Parent!

11 days ago

Amazing results occur when students, parents, and teachers collaborate. Please do not hesitate to ask your child’s teacher or me to discuss your child’s academic growth and goals. 

Learn more about academic growth and goals developed through the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) testing process here.

What do involved parents do? Involved parents do one or more of the following:

  • Asks their child every day about school and listens to the child’s response, prompting conversations about the day.

  • Reads to or with their child every day.

  • Participates in two-way meaningful communication with the classroom teacher at least once every two weeks.

  • Speaks to their child regularly about the importance of school and always doing one’s best.

  • Is selective about the programs their child watches on TV.

  • Provides their child with a quiet place to do homework and daily checks on what homework the child has.

  • Attends school functions when their child is involved in the program. If work doesn’t allow this, an involved parent lets the teacher know he/she won’t be able to make it and that he/she will call the teacher after the program to see how it went. The involved parent also lets the child know why he/she can’t attend the event and checks with the child how it went.
