Parental Involvement

Another disappointing show of parental involvement at a evening program for 9th grade parents at Milford High School. I attended a program tonight in which the counselers discussed with parents what to expect, and what will be happening as the current 9th graders move up to 10th grade. The current 9th grade class is 350 students strong this year, and yet I know there was not more then 20 parents there tonight.
We are asking more and more of the students each year, and the decisions they make now as to a pathway they take will affect their lives after they leave our little piece of the world! So how can a parent justify not attending something as important as their childs future? The 3 counselors joked about it when they started, but it is a viable question, “How do we get more parents out to these types of event?” If someone out there reads this and has some suggestions please feel free to comment and I will pass them along!
