Both students and schools benefit when parents are involved in education. Academic achievement and standardized test results are higher, students have a more positive attitude toward school and their behavior is better. At Stoddert, we count on your involvement to make it a great school. Every single thing parents and friends of the school do to contribute makes a difference.
Be involved in your child’s education by communicating regularly with his teachers. Think of yourself as the teacher’s partner in managing education. Monitor your child’s homework and school projects, making them a top priority in her schedule. Volunteer to help in the classroom or help out with extracurricular activities.
Connect to the school community and volunteer through the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Stoddert’s PTA is an organization of dedicated and energetic parents and teachers that sponsors many school activities and events benefiting the students, faculty, and staff. Stoddert families volunteer in classrooms, in the library, at holiday festivals, and for PTA-sponsored events. Be sure to support the PTA by paying your membership dues, suggested $400 per family per year tax deductible contribution. You can pay all at once or in payments throughout the year.
