At Park Hills Elementary School, we recognize that there are three necessary components to a student’s academic success: the child, the teacher and the parent. As a parent, you want to see your child realize his or her fullest potential. Our entire faculty shares that very same objective. Partnering together will make that shared goal much more attainable.
According to the national Parent Teachers’ Association, the two key benefits of parental involvement are as follows:
- Supportive involvement increases the probability of academic success
- Parent volunteerism contributes directly to goal and program support
Research has proven that students whose parents are actively involved in their education tend to more consistently complete their homework assignments, achieve more noteworthy grades, perform better on tests and achieve higher attendance rates. Studies also indicate that parental involvement can positively influence graduation rates, as well as the likelihood of college enrollment.
Taking an active role in your child’s education can have a direct impact on his or her academic success, both now and well into the future. Perhaps no time is more important for this than during the elementary years.
At Park Hills Elementary School, we are honored to partner with you in helping your child achieve great things!
