Nearly 475 students wrote essays about why they believe they have “superior” parents for the bi-annual Parent Advisory Council Celebration.
“The program was designed to get parents excited about participating in school and district activities and make them feel appreciated, thus bridging the gap between school and home, and ultimately improving students’ academic performance,” said Carol Ingram, Director of Federal Programs.
Every parent or guardian mentioned in the essays received a Certificate of Excellence and a copy of their student’s essay.
“We want to get our parents fully involved with the schools,” Ingram said. “The amount of parental involvement that is done dictates how successful our students will be. Parental involvement, students’ academics, student performance, all go hand in hand.”
