Dear PPE Families,
When you think of parent involvement, do you picture moms and dads volunteering in classrooms? That’s one way to help—but research shows that supporting your child’s education at home is even more important. Here are four conversations that will help you stay involved:
“Let’s see what you brought home.”
“Show me what you have for homework or a book that you are reading.”
“Describe or tell me about a book you enjoyed today.”
“Tell me what you learned that you’d like to know more about.”
In Middle Tennessee, 1 in 6 adults and 1 in 4 children struggle with hunger. Second Harvest does so much to help people of all walks of life in our community to have access to food. Thank you to our PPE families for supporting our recent Second Harvest food drive. PPE was recognized as one of the top three schools in this year’s food drive. With you participation and support, we were able to provide food to many families in the greater Nashville area.
It is hard to believe, but there are ten days left in this semester. There will be many opportunities to participate in during the holiday season. In today’s Friday folder, you will find an envelope and a note from the PTO. As we have done for many years, we will be collecting monetary donations for our amazing support staff at PPE. From our ladies in the front office to those who clean our school, we want to show our appreciation to those who care for our children every day. We will present the monetary donations to these employees at our staff luncheon on December 16th. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Your partners in education,
Melinda Williams and Mark Mason
