At Emory H Markle Intermediate School, we hold a steadfast belief that there are three critical components to academic success in a student’s life: the child, the teacher and the parent.

As a parent, you want to help your child achieve his or her fullest potential. We share that very same desire. That’s why it is so important that we partner together to work toward that goal.

The national Parent Teachers’ Association lists two key benefits of parental involvement:

  • Supportive involvement increases the probability of academic success
  • Parent volunteerism contributes directly to goal and program support

Research shows that students whose parents are actively involved in their education tend to complete their homework assignments more consistently, get higher grades, perform better on tests and have better overall attendance. Studies also indicate that parental involvement can lead to higher graduation
rates and increase the likelihood of college enrollment.

Without question, being involved in your child’s education is a critical component to his or her success, both currently as well as in the future. Perhaps no time is this more important than during the adolescent years.

At Emory H Markle Intermediate School, we want to work with you to help your student reach his or her greatest potential. Together, we can ensure that your child will achieve great things!
