Not surprisingly, much of what our parents do is in direct support of their student’s education. In elementary grades, parents help with spelling quizzes, assist with memory verses and review daily homework assignments. Parents participate – along with teachers – to ensure that our students have every opportunity to succeed academically.
Parents are also involved in other activities that enhance the learning environment. They act as chaperones for class trips, volunteer in the classroom, teach adjunct classes, make costumes for the spring play, run the scoreboard at athletic events, and coordinate hot lunches. All of these activities (and many more) make for a rich, robust learning atmosphere for our students, and wouldn’t be possible without the support of our parents.
It is also evident that Triad parents take ownership in our school as a whole. Our parents staff concession stands, volunteer on our school board, plan and set up book fairs, take on painting projects, even install windows and mow lawns. Not only does this set the example of stewardship that we hope to instill in our students, it also allows us to focus our budget and staff resources on Triad’s main mission – providing a quality education for its students.
