Rosemont & Your Child Needs You!!!
Did you know that parents have a significant effect on their children’s education? It’s true. Good education isn’t just about teachers and school— what you do as a parent really counts. There have been hundreds of research studies on parents and school, and they all show the same thing: When parents get involved in their children’s education, good things happen. Among them: Grades go up Test scores rise Behavior improves Meeting and communicating with the teacher is important, too. Students do best when parents and teachers work together as partners. Let the teacher know about anything that may affect your child’s performance: strengths and weaknesses, learning style, study habits, special interests, family issues, personality traits, or behavior concerns. The teacher is an expert when it comes to education, but no one knows more about your child than you.
Children with involved parents are more likely to pass their classes, graduate, and further their education after high school. And when lots of parents get involved, it helps teachers and the school as a whole.
