Tip 5: Join the PTA and Get Involved

In order to have a successful school year you, your child, and the school must work together as positive "partners". School conferences, functions, and meetings can be intimidating if you don't understand everything that is going on. This brings us to Tip #5,

Tip #5 Get Involved
Getting involved in your child's school doesn't take being there 2 to 3 hours everyday. As a matter of fact, simply joining the PTA and attending their meetings will give you valuable information about the objectives of the school year and things you can do to help. Volunteer where you feel comfortable. If there is a fund raiser, try to sell as many items as possible. All the funds should go toward enhancing every child's education at the school. If you can be a "reading buddy" for a child or tutor a child in math. This should be a rewarding experience for both of you and the child. If you work everyday, ask the teacher if there is something you can do at home (examples: make activities for centers,staple packets, help with bulletin boards, copy assignments for the class, organize papers or group assignments, color or paint objects, etc.). Just being visible and helpful at your child's school truly helps your child.
