"This web page is intended to encourage parental involvement. Within a few short paragraphs this web page develops the position that communication between parents and teachers is central to the success of student learning. The web page enlarges on the ways in which parents and teachers can readily communicate. Teachers appreciate parental interest in their children's progress. Volunteering for in school activities provides parents with occasions to understand school programs. Appropriate phone calls are a time-honored method of communication between home and school. Parent-teacher conferences are the occasion for teachers to build a healthy relationship with their children's teachers."
