Brookwood Junior High School will join the National Education Association (NEA) and thousands of schools nationwide in celebrating the annual American Education Week from November 14th – 18th, 2016. As part of the celebration, we will be organizing [“Parents Day”] on Tuesday, November 15th, 2016, to provide you with a firsthand look at what the school day is like for your child. This initiative is designed to spotlight the importance of parental involvement in a child’s education.
Ongoing research shows that parental involvement in schools improves student achievement, reduces absenteeism, and restores confidence among parents in their children’s education. We encourage you to participate in this important day.
The activities taking place throughout the day will also reinforce American Education Week’s tagline, [“Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility.”] The tagline represents NEA’s vision of calling upon all Americans to do their part in making public schools great for every child so that they can grow and achieve in the 21st century.
