Every year the state of Georgia recognizes the month of November as Parent Engagement Month, and schools across the state highlight the role parents play in a student’s education. Additionally, the third Thursday in November is National Parent Involvement Day. This is a day for all parents to consider how they can get more involved in the education of their children.
To assist parents in the process, the Georgia Department of Education provides Get the facts…get connected…GET INVOLVED! resources for parents and schools to encourage parent engagement. Each year, we also release an updated Parent Engagement Month calendar that provides specific activities for parents to do with their children at home each day in November to support learning and academic achievement. While we encourage parents to use these materials particularly during Parent Engagement Month, parents can also utilize them to engage in meaningful conversations and positive interactions with their children throughout the year.
Every student in Georgia should have a strong support system that values and encourages educational achievement and there is no one that can support this effort better than parents. All of the information you need is right here to start celebrating Parent Engagement Month at your schools with your families!
