Parents are essential to the successful education of their children.
The research is very clear: when parents are involved in their child’s
education, that child does better in school. At Wolfle, parent
involvement is very important to teachers and parents are welcomed in
all aspects of their child’s education.
Because we know that parents have jobs, schedule constraints, and
other children to parent, Wolfle staff try to create a variety of ways
in which parents can be involved with school and their child’s
education, including the following:
Informing your child about how important his/her schooling is. This can be done by encouraging your child to complete homework, setting expectations for attendance, discussing post high school education, and asking questions about what is being studied in school.
Participating in the development of the Student Learning Plan which outlines student, parental, and school commitments to helping your child do his/her best in school.
Staying in contact with your child’s teacher,
keeping informed of progress and problems, and attending conferences.
This may also include checking your teacher’s website and the Wolfle
at school, whether occasionally such as for a field trip, or routinely
as a tutor, art docent, or classroom helper. Working on PTA events, such
as field day, Santa’s Breakfast, and the Carnival, also fulfills
important volunteer functions.
Serving on building and Title I Advisory Committees and
participating in surveys and other activities to provide input to staff
in planning improvement activities, parent trainings, etc, and
contribute to decisions made for students.
Attending classes and workshops on a variety of topics, such as, curriculum, helping your child with homework, testing, child development and parenting.
The Wolfle Title I/ LAP program has a detailed Parent Involvement
Policy and Plan that is updated annually, based on parent input.
