In celebration of National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID), Stevenson Elementary students had the chance to share their school experience with their parents on February 11, 2019.
Parents had the opportunity to meet teachers, staff and administrators, and visit their child’s classrooms for a portion of the day. They also enjoyed a presentation put together by the students and Hope Laroche, Stevenson’s family and cultural liaison. Students recited poems and quotes by famous African American leaders or those they wrote themselves.
According to Laroche, NAAPID is important in reinforcing the value of parental involvement.
“When parents or guardians and schools work together to promote academic achievement, children succeed at higher rates,” said Laroche. “We want to provide as many opportunities as possible where we can all work together so all students can achieve to the best of their potential.”
Laroche added that she was proud of the students for presenting to the crowd with such poise and confidence.
“We were thrilled that so many parents and guardians were able to join us in celebrating this day,” said Laroche. “We’re so glad we can provide a welcoming environment for both students and parents so our school can provide a path to success for all students.”
