Falcon's Open House at the Heilmann Recreation Center

Five reasons to attend your school's open house


1. Meet the teacher: This will show the teacher that you are serious about your parental involvement, that you are invested in your child's education and you want to establish a collaboration with him or her for great results for your child.

2. Learn about the curriculum: Sure, education has a lot of acrynoms and jargon that can sound like Greek, but hearing it, asking questions and taking notes will make it less of a mystery. This will help you explain to your child the importance of learning goals and understand more clearly if your child requires accommodations.

4. Look for potential concerns: This is a time you can discover a way to support your child and the teacher, how to support the curriculum from home and the best way to communicate with the teacher.

5. Opportunities to support: There are many opportunities to help, whether it's signing up for the fall festival, cutting out laminated items for the classroom, coming in for Community Helpers Day or reading a book. Be consistent with the offer of support because it is so important that your student observes your participation. It gives him or her a sense of connection to school and begins to understand that school is a consistent, scheduled and reliable place that can add value to their future.
