Welcome Parents and Families
We welcome our students' parents, families and guardians to join us in preparing today’s students to take charge of America’s future. We recognize that raising children is a team effort, and that students benefit from an educational team involving our schools and you.
Research shows that the more parents get involved in their child’s education, the higher level of success that student can achieve. Parent engagement is potent as rocket fuel, and with it, there’s no telling how high your child can soar.
What’s the best way to get involved? The district’s Parent Outreach and Engagement Department offers programs and resources in the most effective ways to help your child academically.
Our schools welcome families, guardians and community members in hundreds of ways to pitch in, often with seemingly small tasks that can have far-reaching results. You can join parent-teacher associations, chaperone field trips, run a booth at a school carnival or read Dr. Seuss to primary students. Students benefit when professionals come speak at career fairs, and offer them challenging internships. You make an impact by joining any one of the district’s many advisory committees and councils, and help shape policy on everything from legislation to athletics.
Our district is committed to involving student families and the community, and fulfilling the parent involvement obligations under federal and state law. We’ve made it official policy, to establish effective partnerships at every level in the educational process -- from our classrooms, to company boardrooms, to family living rooms.
Opportunities for Parent Involvement
Parents have many opportunities to be involved at their children’s school site (for example, governance committees, special events, fundraising events, parent organizations, and in classrooms) and at the district level (for example, district councils/committees, Parent University, and special events). We also encourage parents to support their children at home by making their expectations about school clear and creating a positive homework and learning environment.
We at Johnson Elementary are committed to obtaining community resources for our school and invite all constituencies to assist us in the education of our students.
The strength and success of Johnson STEM is rooted in our strong relationship with our parents and the greater community. Our newsletter, The Johnson Roar, informs parents and community members of our upcoming events. Parents are invited to participate in Johnson School’s Parent Teacher Association, English Learner Advisory Committee, School Site Council, Family Fridays, principal’s coffees, and NASA Family evening events for the entire community.
