“Popping Up”—Parent Visitation Program

 

Shh!  The best “pop-up’s” occur when you plan your visit, but keep it a secret from your chid(ren)!

 One of our successful returning programs is the Parent Visitation Program (PVP) which was formed to increase parental access to schools while improving communication between parents and teachers. As we did last year, we are inviting each parent/guardian to schedule at least two days during the school year to observe the instructions taking place in the classroom. You are encouraged to spend a day, morning or afternoon in your child’s class or as little as 20 minutes to view the daily routines, interactive instructional strategies, and the excitement of the teaching and learning process. By participating as an observer you will gain a better understanding of the curriculum, assessment process, and how you can support your child’s academic outcomes at home. 

 Schedule your observation today by contacting Mrs. Curle Yates or Ms. Latasha Brawner at 301-749-4350

 

  • Cheers for Volunteers!

Please come in and share your time and talents with the students and staff at Valley View. "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much"- Helen Keller. As parents you are our partners. A school staff cannot function efficiently without parental support. We welcome you with open arms!

 100 Tips For Parents

Parents Rights--There may be times when you need to be an advocate for your child’s education.  In order to be a good advocate, you need information.

Tip #1:  You have the right to examine your child’s school records and look at test results and teacher comments.  If you see things you don’t understand, ask the teacher, parent liaison, orschool principal for and explanation.

 

Tip #2: If your child is in special education classes, you have the right to be part of developing an individual educational plan to meet your child’s needs.  This is established by the Federal Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

 Tip #3: If your child is suspended from school you have the right to ask for a review of the decision. 

Stay tuned for more tips in our next issue!
