With our busy lives, it’s often very hard to make it to every school fund-raiser or open house. Luckily, you can have a big impact on how your child does in school without having to attend every event. Research has shown that students with involved parents usually have higher grades, attend school regularly, graduate, and go to college.
Here are three ways to get involved:
Know what’s going on in school
The more you know about what your child is learning, the more you can help your child stay on track.
Participate in learning at home
Encourage learning outside of school. Show that you value your child's learning.
Plan your child’s time
Monitoring your child’s time will help you make sure he or she has time for school and fun. Set aside time each week. It’s not about the amount of time, but the fact that there is time set aside.
