Parent involvement is critically important in the education of children of all ages, from newborns through high school age and beyond. We know that parents—and what they do or don’t do at home—make a huge difference in children’s reading ability, in their attitudes toward learning, in the development of socially responsible behaviors and values, in children’s performance on standardized test scores, in students’ likelihood of graduating from high school, and much more. School teachers and staff at Richland Springs must continually try to engage all parents in the education of their children because we know parents, students, and Richland Springs’ school benefits when children and schoolwork are supported at home. Please contact your child’s teacher(s) and get involved in their education today. Your help and support are needed and appreciated. We appreciate the opportunity to educate your children, who will be the workforce of tomorrow. Working together we can accomplish anything.
