PARENT ENGAGEMENT

Studies have shown that parent involvement in their students' education is a major step towards their success in the child's growth and academic achievement.  Below are some ways parents can be involved.

 

 Please contact South Family Liaison Kim Diggs if you have questions about Engagement and Volunteer opportunities!   kediggs@aurora.k12.org or call South at 303-364-7623

 

AT SCHOOL:

-Quarterly Accountability and Advisory meetings (SAAC)
-Fall and Spring Title 1 meetings
-Parent/Teacher Conferences

AT HOME:

Talk to Mrs. Diggs about how to sign up for Parent Portal and view grades and attendance
Talk to your student about what they learned in school each day

Examples:
Can you teach me something new? What homework do you have today?
Share with me what you learned in (Language Arts, Literature, Reading, Writing, Math, History, Social Studies, etc.) today.
Would you explain this concept to me?
 What is the goal of this section?
What project are you working on for school?
Don't accept "Nothing" or "I don't remember" for answers!

  • If possible, provide a specific place and time to work on school assignments. Try to reduce distractions such as music, television, noise and clutter.
  • Review report cards together. Reward your student for work well done. Encourage your student in areas that need improvement.

 

These are just a few examples of ways to engage in your student's learning. Don't wait..Get Involved!
