Parent Involvement Day at DCSS

DCSS Schools Celebrate Parent Involvement in November
Posted on 12/05/2022
November was National Parent Involvement Month, and several schools around Douglas County took time to thank parents for all the ways that they support learning each day. 

At Arbor Station Elementary School, PTSO members helped recognize parents during the afternoon pick-up line and while parents were picking up students from the after school program.

“My parents loved this and they were super excited,” said ASES principal Dr. Emily Felton. “This will be something we celebrate every year.”

At Mt. Carmel Elementary School, recognized parents with the theme All Hands on D.E.C.K. (Dedicated, Enthusiastic and Committed to Kids) to honor their parents the week before Thanksgiving. 

Teachers welcomed parents into the classroom on November 17 to work with students on various activities throughout the day. Students were excited to have their parents engaged in their learning. Parents enjoyed getting a glimpse of all the work that goes into a school day.

“The parent involvement time allowed parents to see the realities of the classroom, this helped to foster the relationship between parents, teachers and school,” said Jessica Atkins, a third grade teacher and parent. “We all can learn from each other, and the kids need to see that we are partnering and working together.” Parents with Student During Event

On Friday, MCES’ fathers, grandfathers and other male role models volunteered their time to greet students by assisting with car riders, hallway duty and cafeteria duty.

“Kids need to understand that they not only have their teachers to depend on, but other members of the community to support them,” said MCES parent Lavaris Frett.
