Parent Resource Rooms
Did you know that there is a parent resource room located at your child's school? The parent resource rooms have books and videos on parenting, discipline issues, how to help your child in school, "hands-on" materials to check out, as well as other information useful to parents and students.
Please check the school's website for information on how to access the resource room at your child's school.
We are interested in knowing what materials you think would be helpful to add to the parent resource rooms. There are forms to use in the rooms upon which you can put suggestions or you may contact Ms. Rivera 912-395-5400
Why Parental Involvement?
Involvement in your child's education is very important to your child's success in school. Research shows when parents are involved in their child's education and partner with their child's school, children do better and enjoy school more.
We have created this website to give parents information about resources, informative websites and upcoming parent events.
The school websites also have important information concerning upcoming parent events at each school as well as grade level information on testing and academics.
If you have any questions concerning parental involvement, please contact me at 395-5400 or by email at (soon)

How Can I Get Involved?
Parents are busy people, but there are many different ways that you can become involved in your child's education! Here are a few ideas:
1. Volunteer at your child's school. Our schools welcome parent volunteers. Contact your child's school to find out how you can become involved as a volunteer.
2. Attend school functions, meetings and events. Meetings at schools are arranged at different times during the day to try to accommodate busy schedules.
3. Keep in touch with the school and your child's teacher.
4. Show your child that you think school is important and that you expect them to do their best at school.
5. Be an active part of decision making committees at your child's school.
6. Provide a learning environment at home for your child and show your child you are interested in their school day.
7. Be informed about your child's school activities and schedule. Talk with your child daily about what they have learned and check notebooks/bookbags for correspondence sent from school.
8. Check the website for your child's school on a regular basis .
