De La Salle's parent involvement starts at home and extends to the classrooms and beyond. Families can work together to support and strengthen their child's academic and spiritual experience. Here are some suggested activities or approaches to use at home:
- Check homework every night
- Read a bedtime story to your child
- Get involved in PTO
- Discuss your child’s progress with teachers
- Vote in school board elections
- Help your school to set challenging academic standards
- Limit TV viewing or internet use to no more than two hours on school nights
- Get personally involved in school functions
- Participate and volunteering in school events
- Have a positive attitude
- Be Christ centered
- Become an advocate for better education in your community
- Insist on high standards of behavior for children
- Communicate with children, parents and teachers
- Ask your child, "How was school today?"
Additionally, parent and family involvement includes actively participating in school, church, community service and events.
As the parent of a Catholic school student you will want to know what your child is learning so you can help them along at home. You and your child's teacher will be the most important influence on your son or daughter's education. Gradelink is the main source of communication at De La Salle and we encourage parents to log-in on a regular basis to monitor your child's academic progress.
