How might I become more involved in my child's school?
We believe that parent participation is critical to achieving the very best learning outcomes for our student. There are many ways to become involved in the schools. Some of the more formal ways include joining the Parent-Teacher Association or becoming involved as a participant or elected member of the site council at one of our schools. There is always need for classroom volunteers in our schools as well as other helping roles that support the education of children. You may become a volunteer by obtaining and completing a "Volunteer Application Form". While very valuable, direct parent involvement in the schools is not the only way to help assure your child's success. Providing a set time and quiet place for homework, monitoring the completion of assignments, contacting your child's teacher and discussing his or her progress and reading to your child are all important ways of communicating to your son or daughter that you value learning and are a partner with your child's teacher.
