Three For Me
parents help their child with homework, spend time in their child's classroom, have lunch at school or volunteer on a PTA
committee, this shows children their families are committed to their education. Three for Me is a promise
to your child that you care about his education and you'll be there-for at least three hours each school year.
Three hours-not too much to ask when it comes to your child...
Research shows that a welcoming school
community is a key to increasing parent involvement. When parents are more involved, they are better able to support their
children's learning, and their children do better in school. Three for Me creates opportunities for parents to be involved
in their child's education, both in and outside of the school.
(Three for Me is an official PTA program.
