Parental Involvement

Dear SIS community,

We are almost a month into the school year, and we have already witnessed student achievement and progress.  Of course there have been mistakes along the way, but that is how we learn!

An important element of students’ learning is for parents to be involved.  Studies consistently show that parental involvement is an influential predictor of student success.  But what exactly is “parental involvement,” and can there be too much?  Appropriate parental involvement can include some of the following:

  • Provide your child with the space, time, and materials that they need for studies
  • Provide structure and experience that teachers expect a child to have prior to going to class
  • Know what assignments have been given at school, and follow up on their completion
  • Know where your child is at all times, and make sure they have appropriate supervision

See the following article for more information about being involved in your child’s studies:
