October is Parental Involvement Month

October is Statewide Parent Engagement Month. This is a time when employers are encouraged to give working parents time off to participate in partnership programs for parents developed by each of our schools. This month is an opportunity for parents and the community to show their support for public education—our schools, teachers, students, and learning. It is an opportunity to build partnerships with parents and new ways to work together throughout the school year. It underscores the fact that it takes more than our schools to educate our students—it takes parents, families, and communities. There is no better way to involve the community than to invite them into our schools. We all know parent engagement in children’s education means children learn more, and that is what we all want. In fact, we have worked for years to get greater parental engagement in their children’s education. Alabama’s Statewide Parent Engagement Month is an opportunity to make this happen! It is critical that you and our teachers be actively involved in this program to make it a successThank you for your anticipated support and participation in this statewide initiative. We look forward to seeing our parents on October 28th at Opp Middle School!!!!
