Parents Partners in Education = Los Padres Participantes en la Educacion.
School children can learn even more when the school and parents work as a team. Parents can become active members in the school community by attending parent conferences, volunteering, and voting in school elections. Other ways that parents can help the school are by being aware of what their children are learning in school and communicating with school personnel about any school-related problems. Good nutrition and good health are prerequisites for learning. Parents can teach their children basic skills that make academic learning possible, such as self-confidence and discipline. Television viewing should be limited to a reasonable time period and alternatives should be provided. Establishment of a regular "homework time" without distractions is necessary. This document, presented in both Spanish and English, suggests more than 40 ways parents can encourage their children in the areas of reading, writing, arithmetic, social studies, science, physical education, and the arts.
