Tip – Asset #6 – Parent involved in schooling
Think of school as something you and your child do together. Get to know your child's teachers, stay in touch, and visit the classroom when you can. Ask what you can do to help in the classroom and outside of it. Ask questions every day about your child’s day in school, about both the "events" and how your child feels about it. When you show school is important to you, it will be important to your child.
