National Parental Involvement Day
Download Press Release
Since 1993 National Parental Involvement Day forms part of the weeklong observation known as American Education Week. National Parental Involvement Day celebrates public education and honors parents who make a difference in ensuring that every student receives a quality education. Project Appleseed's next annual celebration of National Parental Involvement Day is held on November 18, 2021- the third Thursday of the month!
Our next National Parental Involvement Day, November 18, 2021, provides a yearly opportunity for schools and families to honor and highlight the powerful contributions parents and caregivers provide at school and home to support student success. However, parental involvement shouldn’t be confined to just one day – it should be emphasized all year long.
Getting involved in your child’s education has been shown to dramatically increase the chances of academic success. This annual day of recognition serves as not only a celebration of currently involved parents, but also a reminder to seek out ways to make a difference. Check with your student’s teacher or the office in their school to see how you can help.
