Off to a Good Start! Engaging Parents in the Kindergarten Year

The kindergarten year presents a unique opportunity for parents and schools to build relationships and more importantly, a foundation for students' success.

The NEA says "Research shows that the most accurate predictor of a student's achievement in school is not income or social status, but the extent to which that student's family is able to: create a home environment that encourages learning; express high expectations for their children's achievement and future careers; and become involved in their children's education at school and in the community."

In the kindergarten year, parents are motivated and eager to find the right strategies, routines and balance to help their children do their best. Reaching out to families before and after they begin kindergarten is akin to reaching into the future...shaping school and student success.
