Research shows that family engagement promotes student success. Students with involved parents are more likely to earn higher grades, pass their classes, attend school regularly, have better social skills, and go on to post-secondary education. Family engagement in children’s education allows kids to perform better in school, and navigate more easily some of the challenges of growing up, such as bullying.
The Washington Elementary School PTA is the vehicle through which engaged parents can accomplish great things for their children and ensure their overall success.
Become an active PTA member and you will • enhance your child's self-esteem • improve your child's academic achievement • improve your parent-child relationship(s) • help develop a positive attitude towards the school and a better understanding of the schooling process.
