Building a Better World, One Student at a Time – Partners in Learning/Education
JICES PTO will work in partnership with the faculty, students and parents to promote the school’s commitment in the development of the student’s integrity, character, and academic potential.
We are looking for Parents that will work with Teachers to recruit parents to help with projects, day-to-day activities, copying, filing, etc. You are the liaison between the teacher and parent volunteers.
Box Tops Labels – Boxes are in each classroom to submit labels.
You are the biggest influence in your child's life and education. Teachers and your child's classmates are important, but you are much more important. You are the ones who have seen your child through the years. You have fed and clothed your child. You have loved and tried to teach your child right from wrong.
We know that children whose parents are involved with their education are happier and get better grades. We also know that parents report they become happier when their children are happy.
The difference between a GOOD school and a GREAT school is the involvement of its parents. It is true that students whose parents are involved do better in school. Children learn to place importance on the things that are important to their parents.
Maybe you do not have much time to become involved or maybe you are not sure how to begin. It does not take a great deal of time to make a big difference in your child's education. Fifteen minutes of uninterrupted time spent with your child each day can improve study skills, build self-esteem and go a long way toward a successful school experience.
Communication with the teacher and other campus staff can help, too. Simple, short notes to the teacher to keep him/her aware of any changes in your child's daily schedule or to thank the teacher for lessons your child has enjoyed are always good. Some parents feel it is important to give the teacher lots of "treats" on special occasions. While it is a nice gesture, a better gift is your time and attention given on a regular basis to your child's school work and education needs.
In order to be an advocate for your child and all children, it is necessary to make it your business to learn about your school system, what you can expect from your child's school, how to get things done, who' the main "players" are and how to sense when there is a need for concern.
We hope this information will help you find some ways to work together with your child's school and make the education experience more positive.
