Many parents think that parent engagement at school means being part of the SCC, volunteering for field trips, helping at a hot dog sale or reading with children in the classroom. While these things are very valuable, parent engagement is so much more. It means getting involved in what your child is learning about and supporting them throughout their educational journey.
Students with parents who are engaged in their learning and development, no matter what their background, are more likely to do well at school. However, having the confidence to engage in your child’s learning is not easy for everyone. The good news is that you don’t need a special set of skills to make a real difference for your child. An open mind, a positive attitude and willingness to take part is all that is necessary. Stay tuned for more information on how to be a more engaged parent.
