The most significant predictor of a student’s achievement in school and preparation for a life of success and happiness is parental involvement. Parents who are actively engaged in the educational process are partners with teachers in ensuring that their child is receiving a good education. We want and need parent participation to help ensure that we are meeting our student needs and ensuring we strive for our goal of highest student achievement.
