Get Involved with Your Child's School


A good way to support your child in school is to get involved. Volunteer to be a classroom helper a few days a week, or join the local Parent Teacher Association (PTA). That way, if your child is struggling or is having a hard time with a particular classmate, you'll know who can remedy the situation. This can also help you relate to your child's teacher, and enable you to work together if your child has any special needs.
