Building Family/School Partnerships that Work

The Evidence is in....when schools and families work together to support learning, everyone benefits.
  • Students do better in school and in life.

  • Parents become empowered.

  • Teacher morale improves.

  • Schools get better. Communities grow stronger.
Make 2009 a year of involvement for your family.

What can you do?

  • Attend PTO meetings, parent conferences, and student programs

  • Have lunch with your child

  • Volunteer in the school

  • Ensure that your child completes homework and class projects

  • Praise efforts of your child when graded work is shared

  • Contact teachers when concerns arise

  • Donate to the school through fundraising efforts or by helping with needs of the classroom teacher

  • Tell someone about the great things happening at R. L. Young
