"At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents." -Jane D. Hull

The halls of Park Elementary have a few more faces than normal on a typical school day.

  I noticed this one day walking back to my office.  I thought to myself how wonderful it is to see more and more parents in the classroom and in the hallways working with students and helping teachers. 

What a great example of synergy students see with parents and teachers working together.  This is powerful not only for the benenfit of teachers getting extra help, but to the students to see parents reading with students or working on basic math facts.  This sends a powerful message to everyone within the school walls that learning is important.

If you have an hour or just 20 minutes, every ounce of time you spend in our school is worth it.  Please talk to your child's teacher and see how you can be involved.  Thank You Parents!  We couldn't do it without you.
