Parental involvement is a combination of commitment and active participation on the part of parent to the school and to the student. As parents you can ensure that your child receives the benefits from parental involvement by staying up to date on what is happening in the classroom.
Tulsa Public Schools is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he or she needs to succeed in school and beyond. As a result, these involvement opportunities empower parents to take action. By connecting parents to school officials, community members, other parents, knowledge, and powerful allies, these opportunities build bridges and networks that support schools and sustain whole communities.
We love to see parents get involved with our students' learning, because we know that a parent is a child's first teacher. We host various events throughout the year to keep parents engaged and up-to-date on their students' progress, including a monthly parent meeting in both English and Spanish. During these events, parents learn tips to keep their children on track with their homework, help them manage stress, and learn organizational skills.
Volunteers are the life-blood of a school. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends -- we have something you can do to enrich the life of Owen students.
