Interact Face to Face

“By the year 2000, every school will promote partnerships that will increase parental involvement and participation in promoting the social, emotional, and academic growth of children.”
– Goals 2000: Educate America Act
One strategy to encourage parent teacher interaction is live PSSA Parent and Teacher meetings

Last year we successfully experimented with six locations for information sessions while we conducted PSSAs.

The School Improvement team has recommended plans for socialization meetings
in 32 locations. Here are some examples with parents that I have worked with in the past.

Please suggest others ideas in the comment section.

*These activities were initiated by our students.
