Proviso East High School will host its monthly Parent School Partnership Program (PSP) meeting on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 (6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.). This month’s topic is curriculum and how parents can help their students succeed.
Studies show that school age children spend 70% of their waking hours (including weekends and holidays) outside of school. The most consistent predictors of a student’s academic achievement and social adjustment are parent expectations of the student’s academic attainment and satisfaction with their student’s education at school. Through this PSP meeting, parents may develop a better understanding of school expectations and curriculum in various subjects. They will also learn how they can help support and promote student achievement.
“Our goal is to extend the methods by which we provide guidance, support, and information on how parents can help support their students’ success,” said Proviso East Principal Milton Patch. “This month we will take the time to really have an open discussion with our parents about how they can contribute to their students’ overall learning and educational experiences. If students receive support at home, they have greater chances of excelling in school. This meeting will help parents chart out a game plan and provide them with the information they need to support their students’ learning at home.”
Proviso East teachers and staff will offer valuable suggestions on how parents can help their students develop appropriate study habits for each class offered in the curriculum. This PSP meeting will also offer information on the various options within the school’s curriculum.
All parents are welcome to attend. There is no need to RSVP. However, if you are interested in being a part of the Parent School Partnership, please send a brief message with your student’s name and parent contact information to: email@example.com.
