Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement

Patterson Road School would not be the school it is without the strong support it receives from parents. Parents are involved in every facet of our school, from volunteering in classrooms to serving on the School Site Council to organizing special events.

Through volunteering time as well as participating in special events and fund-raisers, the PTA greatly enriches Patterson Road students’ education, and all parents are invited to help! Our PTA president is Mrs. Josie Coburn. If you would like to contact our PTA, you can leave a message at 938-8787 and you will receive a return call.

Another very important group is the School Site Council, an elected group of parents and school staff that meets several times during the school year to discuss and review school programs. Parents are invited to attend School Site Council meetings. Information about becoming a School Site Council member can be found in upcoming Patterson Road School Newsletters.

Teachers and children enjoy and value the help parents provide as they volunteer in classrooms. If you would like to help in this way, just let your child’s teacher know. There are a wide variety of ways parents can support classroom activities!

Parents are VERY important members of the educational team. Your support of your child’s education is extremely valuable. You are encouraged to work closely with your child’s teacher. Understanding the curriculum, monitoring homework, and reading classroom notes and progress reports can be very beneficial for your child. If your child knows that education is important to you, it will be important for him/her as well. It is also very rewarding to be a part of the success your child will experience.
