Getting Parents to School Workshops

Here are some parent involvement tips when trying to get parents to school activities and events.

  • Divide and Conquer

Provide activities for parents separate from the children. For instance, the parents could to be in the school library to listen to a speaker talk about how to read to your child at home. At the same time, children are in the auditorium listening to a storyteller or watching a quality video, or playing games.

  • Get the Kids Excited

Have a pep rally before the parent involvement activity just as you would hold a pep rally for a sports event. Talk up the event, mentioned how much fun it is going to be. Talk about the refreshments to be provided and the prizes to be awarded. Once the kids are excited they will go home and do their very best to recruit their parents for the event.
