  • Have lunch with your child;

  • Volunteer to help in your child’s class for an hour during the day; or

  • Email your child’s teacher and ask how your child is doing.

Whether or not you are able to visit your child’s school this Thursday, you can commit to taking an active role in his or her education -- help with homework, ask what he or she did each day, communicate with the teacher. One thing is for sure:  Being an actively involved parent will have a huge impact on your child’s education.

The 2011 Parents' Guide to Public Schools is now available! To learn about district services, individual schools, and how to enroll, check it out here.


Parents, you are integral to your child’s success in school. Whether it’s reading to your child at home, helping him or her with homework, joining a parent/teacher group, emailing or calling the teacher to share information, or volunteering at the school, your involvement can have a direct and lasting impact on your child’s academic success.  For many children, just knowing you care about education and support them will help them reach a higher level of success. 

This year, as we recognize National Parental Involvement Day, many of our schools are also celebrating the Thanksgiving season. We want to take advantage of the timing by recognizing and showing our appreciation for parents who are active and involved in their child’s education. We also hope this time will encourage others to get involved.

I hope you will find time this week, particularly as we recognize National Parental Involvement Day on the 17th, to consider ways you can support your child’s education that work for your own family.

We appreciate the thousands of dedicated and caring parents and grandparents who already volunteer in and support our schools. You are making a difference for your children and all the students you help.

There are several ways you can get involved at your child’s school.  In 2003, Tennessee adopted six parental involvement standards. They include:

Welcoming all families into the school community. Families are active participants in the life of the school, and feel welcomed, valued, and connected to each other, to school staff, and to what students are learning and doing in class and school.

Communicating effectively. Families and school staff engage in regular, two-way, meaningful communication about student learning.

Supporting student success. Families and school staff continuously work together to support students’ learning and healthy development both at home and at school, and have regular opportunities to strengthen their knowledge and skills to do so effectively.

Speaking up for every child. Families are informed and enabled to be advocates for their own and other children, to ensure that students are treated fairly and have access to learning opportunities that will support their success.

Sharing power. Families and school staff are equal partners with equal representation in decisions that affect students and families and together inform, influence, and create policies, practices, and programs.

Collaborating with community. Families and school staff work together with community members to connect students, families, and staff to expanded learning opportunities, community services, and civic participation.


Thursday, Nov. 17 is National Parent Involvement Day, and Metro Schools wants you to get involved! There are a number of ways to get involved. A great way to get connected is by contacting your cluster Parent Involvement Specialist.


The J.T. Moore Middle School Counseling Department, with the help of the Hillsboro Cluster JT Moore Parent Night - parents eating and visiting at Parent NightFamily Involvement specialists, planned and hosted a Parent-Teacher ‘Meet and Eat,’ at the Easley Community Center on Nov. 1.  All J.T. Moore faculty and staff were present as were several local community organizations including Salama Urban Ministries, the Mental Health Co-op, Brighter Days Tutoring, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee.  Families and teachers had the opportunity to get to know one another and sit down to a wonderful meal catered by From Scratch Catering and Darlene’s Cakes

The event was a great success, increasing the school’s presence in the community while helping parents and teachers form collaborative relationships. The school hopes to make this an annual event. It was sponsored by the school’s generous PTO.


Oct. 27, Apollo hosted a hugely successful Family Math Night. More than 300 people attended the event where they not only learned to make fraction bar kits at our Fraction Fiasco and measure the dry ingredients to a chocolate chip cookie recipe at our Cookie Kitchen, but they also were treated to a production put on by the school’s fifth grade band, before heading to the gymnasium to exercise their bodies and minds at our Math Olympics. At the end of the night, everyone settled down to a nice pizza party and multiplication rap! The teachers, students, and families had a great time, and the staff was extremely pleased and excited with the level of support and participation from our families, the community, and the school. Go Astros; that’s the Astro spirit!


This Saturday, Nov. 5, Glencliff High School will host a Free Family Day for Latino Families. Details below.
