    LMS has created a Parent Support Group in an effort to encourage parental involvement. Our first meeting was not the response that we envisioned. After reflecting on our first meeting, we concluded the time needed to be changed so more parents could participate. We felt that the plan we had for it was strong so we did not revisit our initial idea.

    • Our second Parent Support Group meeting was much more successful because of the time change. Participating parents expressed their gratitude towards the time change.

    • I hope we have a big turnout of parents for our Polar Express night. It’s tough to get parents in to middle and high schools.

    • Family engagement is a struggle, but meeting parents where they are has helped us. We find success in getting folks engaged through home visits that are friendly and consist of topics outside of attendance.
