Parental involvement is a term that refers to the involvement of parents in their child’s learning and development. No matter what approach you choose, the important thing is to take an active, ongoing interest in your child’s learning. Need any more convincing? Here are three primary ways that parental involvement benefits any student’s education.
- Increased Academic Success
- Improved Attitude and Motivation
- Better Behavior
Parent/ Teacher Organization
It is strongly recommended that parents/guardians participate in the Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO), and as such, we encourage all parents to join Emma E. Booker PTO. There are a variety of ways to contribute and/or volunteer. Please read the monthly newsletters and check your child's backpack routinely for more information regarding PTO activities throughout the year. The PTO meets the 1st Thursday of every month at 5:30.
Please reach out to Theresa.Marks@sarasotacountyschools.org if you are interested in being a part of Emma E Booker's PTO.
School Advisory Council
The School Advisory Committee (SAC) was established to make recommendations about the continued growth of Emma E. Booker Elementary School. A major function of SAC is to assist in the creation of the Annual School Improvement Plan. All parents/guardians are invited to attend SAC meetings which are held the second Tuesday of the month in the media center at 6:00 pm.
