Southern PTA recently hosted an English Language Arts (ELA) night with the grant money they received from Delaware PTA. Their goal was to engage families by having them come into the school to interact with educators and school staff. Families received details on how to support their children in the areas of ELA and Math. They were also provided with an overview of what is being taught and what is needed at each grade level. Math and ELA coaches were in attendance along with several teachers for question and answer sessions.
PTA President Shymia Bolden said that “any knowledge that we can pass on to parents to help encourage student activities beyond the classroom will help the students achieve great success.”
This event is an excellent example of how PTA can help engage families and support student success.
Way to go Southern!!!
