Importance of Family Involvement

"Parents and families are the first and most important teachers. If families teach a love of learning, it can make all the difference in the world to our children."-Richard W. Riley

I absolutely love this quote! It sums up what Heather and I are encouraging our parents to get actively involved in their children's learning as it helps them become more successful and life-long learners. It is especially important to get involved starting at Pre-K and up through adolescent years.

As we have mentioned in this week's posts, there are many opportunities everywhere for learning and teaching. All you have to do is look around your house, on your walks through the neighborhood, or a grocery store trip. Even on the way or coming back from the grocery store, you can take advantage of some learning time.

The point is to not only be involved in your child's learning, but to also provide them with some real-life exeperiences that can enhance their learning. So we hope that you will continue to be a part of your child's learning. Remember you are your child's first teacher.
