Here in Minnesota and around the country, school is back in session.
Although parents send their children off to school everyday and expect them to do well, their involvement can add an important extra ingredient that will increase their children's success. It has been proven that parent participation is the ingredient that makes the difference. Parents' active participation with their child's education at home and in school brings great rewards and can have a significant impact on their children's lives. Everyday in our community, children are left to decide the value of education in their lives. If we are going to have success, this cannot continue. We as parents, grandparents, and people of influence, must be involved.
