This week we look at Asset #6, Parent Involvement in Schooling. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when their parents are involved in their education.”
Last Thursday night, I attended a school board meeting and work session. Luckily, I landed there when the school principals attended with parents who were representing advisory councils.
It was so wonderful to hear the many projects schools are doing with parents at the helm, often leading the charge. The principals were thrilled with involvement of so many, who do it for the children. They also took the opportunity to gush about their pride in accomplishing so much, holding so many events, raising so much money all in the name of life-long learning.
I don’t want to use this space this week to look at what isn’t good, but what is great and that is what small groups of people can do to help.
The meeting included information about PTO/PTA organizations, BAT teams, CAT teams, PAT teams and more. The events included math and science related events, gardening, reading, sports, game nights, specials nights and barbecues.
