FFS WILL CONDUCT WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS TO HELP PARENTS ORGANIZE AND GET INVOLVED!

Parents of high-achieving students set higher standards for their children's educational activities than parents of low-achieving students. (Clark 7:85-105)

Parents, who read to their children, have books available, take trips, guide TV watching, and provide stimulating experiences contribute to student achievement.  (Sattes 5:2)

The more parents participate in schooling, in a sustained way, at every level -- in advocacy, decision-making and oversight roles, as fund-raisers and boosters, as volunteers and para-professionals, and as home teachers -- the better for student achievement.  (Williams, D.L. & Chavkin, N.F. (1989). Essential elements of strong parent involvement programs. Educational Leadership, 47, 18-20)
