One of the most rewarding parts of being a parent was the time I spent volunteering at my son’s elementary school.
I joined the Parent Advisory Committee the moment he stepped into his first Kindergarten class.
With the first day of school looming on the horizon, I’d like to encourage all parents, moms AND dads to get involved in whatever way they can. It’s a great way to connect with people in your neighbourhood and parental involvement has been shown to help students academically.
Most schools now have websites with a link to their PAC, so there’s really no reason to stay out of the loop!
