Parent involvement is one of the factors for student success. When you become involved in your child’s school, you are modeling for your child the importance of education. Children who see their parents taking an active role in their assignments, grades and activities do far better in school; these children take responsibility for their own learning. Studies have shown that children of parents who are involved in school have fewer behavioral problems, score higher on assessments and earn higher grades on their report cards.
Besides volunteering at school and/or the classroom, you can have conversations with your child at home about their learning. Asking questions about specific assignments, projects, assessments and topics they are learning in class is an easy way to demonstrate to your child that you are involved in their learning. Many children will respond with a one word answer, so make sure your questions are specific. You can also ask clarifying questions — this will get your child to open up.
At MWES we embrace parent involvement and encourage parents to become involved with the school in any way possible. We are so fortunate to have strong parent involvement at our school. I thank you all for everything that you do.
