National Parent Involvement Day
National Parental Involvement Day is November 16. The day 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, according to Project Appleseed, the national campaign for public school improvement, “parental involvement shouldn’t be confined to just one day - it should be emphasized all year long.”
In support of National Parental Involvement Day, the Beaumont ISD Office of Parent and Family Engagement launched the Parent Center at Guess Elementary November 6. Parents and caregivers were invited to visit the center which provides parents with the academic resources to help them support their children’s education, as well as enhance communication between families and educators. On November 16, all parents and families are encouraged to visit their campus’ Parent Centers from 9:00am-3:00pm to learn more about being involved on the campus and in their child’s education.
Also as part of the celebration of Parent Involvement Day, the BISD is teaming up with the Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce for “Social Media a Powerful Business Tool for Small Business.” The free seminar will present ideas for those wanting to start a business or enhance their business by using social media. Parents are encouraged to attend the event at the West Brook High School Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, November 14, at 6:30pm.
Other district events include a Literacy Lunch and Professional Development for parents at Lucas Pre-K Center, November 14-16, where they can visit with teachers, enjoy a short program as well as lunch. November 16, King Middle School and Martin Elementary invite parents to Coffee with the Principal and Fehl-Price Elementary will host Family Reading Night. At Curtis Elementary, parents are invited to drum fit with their kids during PE on November 17.
