Parents are Powerful!Published by jen.teemant on Wed, 10/25/2017 - 14:16
We wanted to let our parents know how much we appreciate you! We have great parent involvement at our school. Did you know, parent involvement is the number one predictor for early literacy success? At our grade level literacy nights, we have had a high percentage of parents attend.
Research shows that students with involved parents are more likely to:
- Earn higher grades and test scores, and enroll in higher-level programs
- Be promoted, pass their classes, and earn credits
- Attend school regularly
- Have better social skills, show improved behavior, and adapt well to school
- Graduate and go on to postsecondary education
We also had many parents come to our parents and pastries activity this week and read a book with their students. Thank you! We think parents are powerful!
