Research has shown that engaged parents have a positive effect on their children's school success in terms of attendance, attitudes toward school and homework, grades, and expectations for the future.
Parent Today—a free, bimonthly, opt-in e-newsletter—provides tools and information to help Schalmont parents be even more engaged in their children's education.
With Parent Today, subscribers will find easy-to-read, blog-style posts talking about what matters most for families. The content covers all four chapters in children's lives: early learners, elementary, middle years and high school.
The e-newsletter addresses important, age-appropriate topics and gives accessible, easy-to-implement strategies for more successful parent-school-student interactions. It also provides information to help families understand the dramatic changes taking place in school curriculum and public education today.
Parent Today is provided free of charge to families in the Schalmont Central School District. Subscribers must have Internet access and an e-mail address to receive Parent Today, which is sent out twice a month.
