Get Involved

Research shows that when parents are actively involved with their children's education, students' grades are higher, their self-esteem is greater, and they are more socially adjusted.  In fact, the most accurate indicator of a student's academic success in school is not tied to family income or social status, but the extent to which a family:

  • creates a home environment that encourages learning.
  • sets high but realistic achievement and career expectations.
  • becomes involved in their child's education and in the community.
In addition to attending parent-teacher conferences, opportunities to get involved at Grant abound. A few examples include:
  • attend our Halloween Carnival.
  • help organize the Jog-a-thon.
  • volunteer in the classroom (Make sure to fill out your volunteer paperwork at the office as soon as possible.)
  • attend PTA meetings. (second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm)
  • sit on a school-wide committee (English Language Learners Committee [ELAC], School Site Council [SSC], Site Governance Team, etc.)
  • drive on a field trip.
  • help with after-school programs such as coaching a Science Olympiad team.
