Students do better academically and socially when schools and parents build a positive relationship. Parent involvement in your child's education is crucial. Your child will benefit by having higher grades, test scores, better social skills and good attitude towards school and his/her education.
Join PTA. PTA does so much for our school. Many of the school events that we have are sponsored by our awesome PTA. The membership fee is only $6.50, but it allows PTA to continue hosting many events that benefit your child.
Become a volunteer at Northlake. There are several opportunities for our parents to help out with either a field trip or an activity at school. Be sure to ask your child's teacher if their is anything that you can assist with.
