Hayden-Winkelman — The Hayden-Winkelman School District is celebrating Parent Appreciation Night tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 5:45 p.m. in the district lobby. This event will recognize the great parents, as well as the community, for their continuous help. The community and parents are the difference between having a good school and a great one.

“To recognize all that you do to support our school district and students, we want to give you a night off of cooking and provide you and your family a meal following a short Title I Academic Program presentation,” said a representative of the Hayden-Winkelman School District.

Research has proven that the more engaged parents are in the education of their children, the better grades and academic success their children will have. Students with perfect attendance spend 70 percent of their time outside of school. Of course, before they are school age, children generally spend 100 percent of their time without formal education of any type. The earlier a child’s educational process begins, the easier it is for them to learn. The most effective forms of parental involvement are those which engage children in learning activities at home.

Lack of parental involvement is the biggest problem facing public schools. Parents who are directly involved with educating their children can be the biggest factor in determining the success of a child’s academic achievement.

Some easy ways a parent can involve themselves in their child’s educational process are monitoring their grades and attendance. Parents can also encourage children to think of school as an opportunity instead of a burden. Helping with homework and attending parent-teacher conferences can also be beneficial for students.

Parents that would like to go beyond that, or need help understanding how to get involved, can make an appointment with the child’s teacher. Many schools offer volunteer programs to assist parents in making the most of their child’s education through involvement in the school system.
Parents should work on building a strong and healthy partnership in order to provide children with a quality education.
