Parkwood Elementary believes that parent involvement means the participation of parents in regular two-way, and meaningful communication involving student academic learning and other school activities.
Parkwood Elementary and our school district have adopted the National Network of Partnership Schools (NNPS) for Family-School Partnerships as the school’s model in engaging parents, students, and the community. These standards are –
4. Learning at Home
5. Decision Making
6. Collaborating with Community
Parkwood Elementary invites all parents to join the Parent Action Team to share ideas and ways to involve other parents to build partnerships with school, families, and the community. The team will meet four times during the school year, but parents can also submit their ideas or suggestions during all activities and meetings as well as through our parent surveys and website. If you would like to learn more about the Parent Action Team, please contact Mrs. Ferraris, PIC at (478) 929-7822 or complete the interest form and leave it in the Main Office.
