Research suggests that students at all grade levels perform better in school when parents support teachers and become involved in the school's functioning. Surveys indicate that many parents want to help their children but do not know how. Offered are activities that can be shared with parents of elementary children. Suggestions for an activity file for reading, mathematics, and language arts are included. An insert on making and flying paper airplanes that highlights the forces that affect flight is provided and can be reproduced for student use. Brochures offering suggestions to parents for helping their children in school are also listed. (ML)
