Parent Involvement

We are thrilled that you have chosen Brookland as the school to educate your child. By working together, staff and parents can accomplish an exciting and productive school year. Parents are an essential part of the Brookland Middle School family. Research shows that students achieve more when their parents are actively involved in the school program.

We encourage every parent to participate in the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA gives parents a voice in the school, providing them the opportunity to communicate and work with teachers and administrators to ensure the success of every child.

As a parent, you are your child's most important teacher – and best advocate. Let your child know you care about his or her school performance. Make sure your child's teacher knows that you are engaged as well.

Here are some ways you can help your child succeed at Brookland. Don't feel you must do everything on this list. Just letting your child know that you expect his or her best is crucial to academic success.

  • Talk to your child about what he or she learned in school that day.
  • Praise your child when he or she does well or makes a good effort.
  • Ask to see homework every day. If your child does not have any homework, contact his or her teacher to find out why.
  • Read any additional material your child brings home from school.
  • Attend student-led conferences. Ask the teacher how you can help your child succeed. (The first student-led conference day is Friday, November 3rd, 2017)
  • If you think your child could use extra help, ask the teacher to help you find a tutor, a reading specialist, or other resources.
  • Visit your child's classroom and volunteer for school activities.
