R.L. Stevenson Elementary School celebrated its African American Parent Involvement Day on Friday, February 16, 2018. Stevenson students in all grades invited their moms and dads in to share their school experience and meet administrators, staff and teachers.
Stevenson's family and cultural liaison Hope Laroche said that National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) is an incredibly important event at Stevenson.
"NAAPID is a day for all parents to come to their child’s school, experience a portion of their child’s day, and support their child’s educational success," said Laroche. She added that the goals of the national event are to address the serious achievement gap facing African American students and promote and provide strategies for all parents and students to take full advantage of the educational process at all levels of the educational system.
"Additionally, we want to promote parent involvement in their child's education," Laroche said. "When parents and schools work together to promote academic achievement, children succeed at higher rates. Student success is our ultimate goal as an institution, and that is why we will continue to encourage and support parental involvement at our school."
