Take Your Family to School Week
Education is an essential part of modern society and can have a positive impact on a child’s lives. Children’s welfare can be promoted through positive actions such as meeting teachers and learning more about the school’s curriculum. These are just a few examples of how you can make a difference in the future.
Take Your Family to School Week aims to make a difference in your community by encouraging parents to get more involved in the education of their children and giving them the chance to do more for them.
Sponsored and organized by the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Take Your Family to Schools Week demonstrates how important parents’ involvement is in children’s education to their families.
In 1897, the National Congress of Mothers was formed to support public education. The PTA was then called the National Congress of Mothers. It was able to bring together mothers from all over the country for this cause and it has seen significant success.
In 1970, the National Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers merged with it to ensure that all children get the best education possible and are successful in their lives.
Inaugurated in 2006, Take Your Family To School Week allows parents to connect with their schools, talk to their teachers, and organize events that help children succeed in school.
This week-long holiday coincides with PTA’s Founder’s Day. It gives parents unique perspectives about their child’s school experience and helps to build new partnerships between teachers and parents, helping them understand each other and gain valuable insight.
Schools across the country organize events for parents to meet teachers and discuss school diversity, education plans, class subjects, and other topics.
Your child will grow and learn if you make your home educational. For example, they might want to plant a garden, read books at home, learn about literature and count to improve their math skills.
Take the time to visit your child‚Äôs teacher if your school is hosting this week‚Äôs holiday. This will give you an opportunity to learn from their experiences and to hear what they have to say about your child’s ability to learn and grow.
Share this holiday on social media using the hashtag #TakeYourFamilytoSchoolWeek to let your friends and family know that this is the time to care about children’s education.
