Our schools should be the centers of our communities. They provide the foundation for the children in the community. Therefore, it is vital that we engage all the members of the local community in our schools.
Here are some ways to engage your families and community members in your schools:
- Curriculum nights: Family Reading Night, Science Fairs, and Math Nights are great ways to have the students and families join together in learning.
- Service projects: Service projects are a great way for the students to give back to their community and the people who have supported them.
- Events in the community: Find opportunities for the band to perform at a community event. Hold the student walkathon at the local park. Hang student artwork in local cafes and restaurants.
Getting the students out in the community will allow the community members to witness the good our students are doing!
