Blackshear ES to Host “Take Your Parents to School Day” Dec. 16-20

Blackshear Elementary School is putting its own spin on “Take your Son or Daughter to Work Day” by hosting  “Take Your Parents to School” the week of Dec. 16-20.

Throughout the week, parents will schedule time in their son or daughter’s classroom to observe and experience the teaching and learning processes that have made Blackshear an Exemplary School.

“We truly want to engage our parents in learning about what their children are experiencing at this school on a daily basis. We know that well-informed parents are more willing and able to support their children’s learning at home,” said Betty Jenkins, principal of Blackshear Elementary. 

Parents are invited to spend an hour in their child’s classroom to watch a typical day and experience the student’s classroom environment.

“We are always working toward building a stronger school community,” Jenkins said. “And keeping parents engaged and informed is a big part of that.”
