increase the levels of parental involvement in Wisconsin schools.

and join ten other states who have officially declared the 3rd Thursday
in November as "National Parental Involvement Day." Wisconsin is on the
map for yet another positive step that will lead to greater levels of

National Parental Involvement Day is Thursday, November 17, 2011.
Sponsored by Project Appleseed, the goal of National Parental
Involvement Day is to increase parental involvement at public schools
across the United States. To celebrate this day, it is up to each
campus to design activities that will encourage parent participation on
campus. Activities do not have to be limited to just include
parents—grandparents and other adults who have a stake in the future of
our youth are invited to participate.
Great ideas for
National Parental Involvement Day include “Muffins with Mom”, “Donuts
with Dad”, a joint community service project, a luncheon, or even an
open house. However, the idea is not to just get support for one
day out of the year, but to stimulate ongoing parent
participation. Houston ISD will host a celebration at Delmar
Field House and inform parents about the many programs that the school
district offers. More....

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (Nov.
5, 2010) – Adams County School District 14 (Adams 14), which serves
nearly 7,500 students annually, celebrated National Parent Involvement
Day on Friday, Nov. 5, 2010.
The District commemorated this occasion by inviting all parents and
caregivers to their child’s school to hear the benefits of family
engagement, and tips for enhancing education at home.
“We are thrilled that so many parents came to schools across our
District Friday morning, to celebrate and recognize the fundamental
role parents play in their child’s academic success,” said Dr. Susan
Chandler, Adams 14 Superintendent. “We are appreciative to have active
parent and caregiver support to enable and enhance student achievement
throughout the District.”
More than 30 years of research regarding the academic benefits of
family participation reveals that students earn higher grades, receive
higher test scores, attend school more regularly, complete more
homework, demonstrate more positive attitudes and behaviors and
graduate from high school at higher rates when families get involved in
“It seems simple, but when students are provided a comprehensive
approach to education – one that includes effective instruction,
enrichment opportunities and support from home – they are truly set up
to thrive academically,” said Lynn Heintzman, Adams 14 Chief Academic
Officer. “We are developing and implementing Districtwide strategies
that enhance parent and caregiver collaboration in our schools.”
Parents and caregivers play an integral role in assisting their child’s
learning at school, as well as at home. By promoting positive attitudes
about learning, families can have a powerful impact on their child’s
literacy and long-term academic success. Some tips for family

Special to the BDN Posted Nov. 16, 2010
Thursday is National Parent Involvement Day — a
day to focus on the importance of parents taking a strong role in their
children’s education. Maine’s future depends on our ability to prepare
our people for success through a quality education, and parental
involvement is an important factor in helping children learn.

key to improving student performance and overall school quality.
Parents have a role and enormous responsibility to make sure their
children are ready to learn and be successful in school, and that
schools are meeting the needs of all of the children they serve.
To begin to understand the state of parent engagement in Maine, MCEE
recently did an informal survey of teachers about parent involvement.
We asked them what strategies they use in their classrooms to engage
parents and families. We asked about district policies that focused on
improving parent engagement. But when we asked them what is the most
important thing a parent can do to ensure their child succeeds in
school, we were struck by how simple and common-sense the answers were.
