FAMILY INVOLVEMENT PLAN
2015-16

Parents play an important role in the academic success of our students.  We want to partner with all of our parents/guardians to help all our students in achieving their academic goals.

Here are several ways to be involved:

  • Attend parent teacher conferences
    • Conferences are offered twice a school year.  Teachers are available to meet parents in the evening and during the day
    • Teachers are available at any time during the school year via telephone or in person with an appointment 
       
  • Join our parent driven group, Jenny Lind All Star Parents PTO
    • Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
    • All Star Parents volunteer at school events, fundraise, sponsor activities and support Jenny Lind
    • All Star parents are an active voice at Jenny Lind and have representatives on Lind’s Site Council.
       
  • Participate in various parent involvement opportunities, such as:
