Public school is back in session, and this provides a greatopportunity for every parent or guardian to get actively involved in making adifference for your child. How? Well, that's a great question, and everybodyhas busy schedules and time constraints. So maybe the best thing for you to dois to simply attend your school's open house event. Meet the teachers, say "hi"to the principal, chat with a counsellor or a coach.
After all, if your keiki see that you care enough to meetand greet and maybe provide some help for a classroom or a given function,maybe that will help reiterate to them just how important school really is.Maybe knowing that Mom and Dad are involved will instill extra pride and maybea little more focus. It doesn't mean you'll make promises you can't fulfill orpledge an unwieldy amount of time and commitment, but maybe you can be involvedin a project, or for a short window of time over the next nine months.
