Many parents, express feelings of guilt because of their commitments to work, home and their schools. They say that it is hard to balance the needs of their family and still find time to visit their student’s school. We understand the dilemma that parents face and want you to know that you are not alone. Students, have many obligations beyond the classroom experience and need their parents to help them fulfill those commitments. It is always great when parents can connect with their student’s teacher. Family engagement and parental involvement manifests itself in many ways and does not only mean visiting your child’s school.
